Crafting for all Seasons #67 "Anything Christmas but a Card" Part 2

Good morning all.

Our challenge at CFAS  is "Anything Christmas but a Card". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. As this is a special one month long challenge we have three sponsors - Whoopsi DaisyRobyn's Fetish and Rick St Dennis who all gave the DT images to work with.
This is my second project.

Another gift bag, this time for my brother. The image is Frosty from Rick St Dennis which I've coloured with promarkers and highlighted with pearlescent chalks. Papers are from Papermania; embossing folder was a magazine freebie; flowers, button, ribbons and raffia from my stash. Snowflake from Asda and the bother charm came from a local garden centre. 

A close up of the quirky snowman. 

and finally a close up of the embellishment, the little white bow was tied on a fork...so cute!

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed. My third project will be showcased on Christmas Day.
