ANYTHING BUT A CARD AT ELISABETH BELL'S CHALLENGE

 Hi all, last month I was very lucky and won the 
I was invited to be their GDT for the month of November of course I said YES, lol, 
the theme is
ANYTHING BUT A CARD
and here is what I came up with.
I have used a digital image that I have had for quite some time it is called 
Letters to Santa and available HERE
I printed out two of the images in different sizes as I wanted to make a gift bag with matching tag, I actually did this as soon as I was invited at the beginning of the month.
I coloured the image with Copics and mounted onto silver mirror card then onto pink linen card stock, the gift bag is in Kraft paper, I have added lace, pink ribbon bows a wide silver bow, flowers, white cone glass bead, frosted berries, die cut branches, row of pearls and on the tag I added pink ribbon with bells on the bottom, I made the ribbon very long so it can be tied round the gift bag with plenty to spare and the bells actually jingle.






I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Oh wow! This is stunning! The bag is seriously a gift in itself. I am a GDT for a blog later this month. What's really funny is that I also decided to make a gift bag. Great minds think alike! Although I love the style of yours much more. I can't stop looking at it! Awesome job Lorraine!
