What do I have for you today?
It is the gorgeous
Isn't it cute and lovely? I fell in love immediately, from the first day I saw this design. You remember the Classic song "On the First Day of Christmas?" Yes it brings me so many lovely memories.
I decided to go for a classy and elegant look this time, and with this stamp I created an easel card, and a paper gift bag. It will hold some perfume and other things like that, a gift for a lovely lady. Yes I found a perfume that matches the seafoam clour, so that it will be part of the gift :)
The sketch is from last week's Friday Sketchers. It was one of my talented friend's: Jacque. I liked it, but didn't have time to try it last week. So I decided to use it today :)This is my first easel card, and I really had fun making it. I used Papermania Joyeux Noel Paper, I'm loving these as well. They have fun designs, and classy ones.. all in the same pack. Thank you Anna, if you read this, for these lovely papers.

I coloured my Belles with Copics, and tried to keep to the style as possible. I added Stickles for some sparkle (who does not love that extra sparkle on Christmas cards? :) and some shine with a gold glitter pen. I don't know if this is visible in the photos. If not try to click on each photo for a better view.I also added half pearls and gold embellies to co ordinate. Then I added touch of Seafoam colour (greenish blue). I think it made a lovely effect, do you?

Laced ribbon is from stash, as also the bow, embellishments and gold corners on bag. Sentiments: round is Stampin Up, the others are computer generated and a Studio G.
It wasn't easy finding things that matched these particular colours, but thank God I succeeded :) I hope you liked what you see, and that it inspires you to create your own gift bags this Christmas. At least, to those closest to you (as these take quite some time to finsh as a set).
Now off you hop to Erin, but before you do, please leave me a comment here, let me know what you think of this set, and leave also some love at my other fellow DT friends. I'm sure you like what you see.
Have a lovely week, and remember to make someone smile with a handcrafted creation :)
Thanks for looking
