Decorate to Celebrate Guest Designer!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!
Hello Everyone! I hope you are having a great week!  I was asked a while back to be a Guest Designer for Decorate to Celebrate and was truly honored and the day has finally come. I have always loved playing in their challenges so here is my project for today's challenge:
 Thanks so much for having me Amy! 
The challenge this week is:
Wedding, Engagement, Bridal Shower etc
Wedding/Engagement" (create any project to be used as a party decoration or party supply for a WEDDING or ENGAGEMENT or ANNIVERSARY PARTY or EVENT!!  Let's celebrate EVERYTHING WONDERFUL ABOUT BEING IN LOVE, TYING THE KNOT and MORE 
Can't wait to see what you create!

Here is my project: 
I have a bridal shower to go to for my daughter's friend in a few weeks and I thought it would be fun to put together a little spa package for her to go along with her gift. So, I got a salon gift card and then added an assortment of fun things for inside the purse such as: nail polish, remover, file, finger nail clipper, cotton balls and hand cream. 
 I saw this adorable cut file at the Silhouette Store and had to make it. It is so simple and I just love how it turned out and can see SO many possibilities. The papers are DCWV Lace & Linen collection. I embossed the pink layers with the divine swirls folder and did some inking with Tim Holtz victorian velvet distressing ink.
I added a fun tag using My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies Metal Dies and stamped the sentiments with the Stampin' Around Summer stamp set.
The center flower was in my stash and the pennant is a Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants die which was stamped with My Craft Spot's Happily Ever After Stamp set. I finished by adding some pearls and pearl flourishes.
Please be sure to stop over and check out what the amazing DT has created for you and come back and join in the challenge! We'd love to see what you create!
Again, thanks so much Amy for having me!!
I am also entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Krafty Girls Challenge #22 Anything Goes
2.) 2 Creative Chicks Challenge #4 3D
