Snowflake gift bag

Today's project is...not a card!  Can you believe it?  I've been doing less cards lately, since I have a huge stash, and have been spending more time catching up on scrapbook pages (which often don't end up here).  That's the reason I haven't been around blogland much lately.

But today's not-a-card project was too cute to not share!  I recently had to go through our "gift bags" bin and reorganize to make everything fit.  I realized how many beautiful bags we had that would work well to add my own decoration to and was totally inspired!

This blue shiny bag was one of the ones in my bin.  I cut out the snowflake from SVG Cutting Files.  It's totally cute, and it's one of their freebies!  Bonus!  I made the shadow with my Silhouette studio software.  I put some Waterfall stickles on the outside part of the snowflake, then put some pink and black cardstock behind the face and popped it up on foam squares.  I used two little pink jewels for the cheeks.  

The sentiment on the bottom is on a banner I just cut by hand from a scrap of paper.  I stamped the sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Christmas Wishes stamp set.

This project is being entered into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp- Wednesday Challenge, Bling it on
