Easter treat bag

Good afternoon friends and followers, well, as usual the Easter weekend has turned out to be grey, dreary and dull here. I do hope you are all having fun though whatever the weather!
So far the puppy sitting is going OK, she has totally worn me out but I will miss her when she goes home tomorrow. The worst bit has been trying to keep her away from Tilly the cat-the first time they saw each other on Monday it was like a scene from Benny Hill-the cat ran, the dog followed, then all four of us ran after them both!! Since then Tilly has spent the whole time hiding in the wardrobe bless her. I'm sure she'll be glad to get the house back to herself.
I haven't managed to get much time to myself for crafting but I did insist on a few hours today to finish this gift bag for my Mum and Dad for Sunday- I bought them a little pack of chocolate and wanted something special to put it all in. The bag held a packed lunch for staff on a development day and in true crafter style I went round collecting up as many as I could find afterwards!!
I liked the sketch over at Creative Inspirations and thought I'd like to incorporate it into my bag. I used a cute bunny image which came as a freebie stamp on a magazine and coloured him with my Promarkers (which have grown over the holidays, naughty ebay!!!!) I also used my freebie paper pack from Nitwits, I so love these colours!! I've added some die cut butterflies, flowers and pearls and coloured a heart shaped doily for behind the image. The wording was die cut with an Xcut die and a little glitter finished it all off!

I'd like to enter my bag into the following challenges:
