Crafting when we Can #26 "123 Recipe"

It's time for a new challenge at CWWC and this time we have a 123 Recipe - 1 large image, 2 sentiments and 3 colours. We're being sponsored by Crafty Ribbons.

I've made a gift bag for Christmas this time. The decoupage image is a recent win from Fred she Said and the papers were from a candy win. Dies are from Spellbinders and punch from Martha Stewart. Ribbon is from my stash and I've used lots of glamour dust to give it some sparkle. My three colours are red, blue and green.
