Back to school backpack

It's back to school time!  For this project, I thought I'd make the backpack treat bag from Life's a Party.  I cut it on my Expression at Fit to Page, which ended up being 8.5 inches.  I don't do a lot of the Cricut 3D images, so I was proud of myself for figuring out how to put it together.  I added a few shoulder straps to the back with glossy accents and leftover cardstock.  

For the sentiment, I cut at 1.5 inches from my Celebrate with Flourish cartridge.  I didn't want to go with the usual red/blue/yellow back to school colors, so I picked oranges and purple and did the shadow in grey.  I finished it up by tying it closed with some homemade orange bakers twine.

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
