The Final Christmas Card Club Challenge For 2015 ... Anything Goes

Good morning.  I am back to my usual one day early for the CCC challenge because I have another project to post tomorrow. For our last challenge this year Zoe has made it very easy for us by allowing us "Anything Goes."

My Project

Large white gift bag - Hobbycraft
Backing papers -  First Edition " Silent Night"
Snowflakes - Spellbinders Create A Flake 4 and 5
Tiny snowflakes - XCut punch
Very large snowflake - ancient stash, 
(possibly Craftwork Cards from about 10 years ago.)
Ribbon and pearls from stash

This really is a dreadful picture but I have tried quite a few pics and none of them are any better. Dark dreary days,  pearlescent cardsock and glittery paper certainly aren't helping the situation.  I have made a gift bag with a flurry of glittery, sparkly snowflakes and in real life it really looks super - honestly!!!  I have added a label to the back of the hanging snowflake and made it into a gift tag. The very large snowflake at the top was white.  I coloured it with Promarkers, sprayed it with glue then drenched it in glitter. I think my sister will pleased  this bag anyway.  I'm not saying she is easily pleased, but she is so appreciative of everything I give her, or do for her, that it really is a pleasure to give her things.

Well that's it from me for today.  Take care all.
