Little Snowy Gift Bag

I'm spending this weekend trying to get all my Christmas cards written and made and wrapped that need to be distributed next week...but I did find time for a challenge (or three!). The Penny Black Saturday Challenge has a colour themed challenge of 'Red & Gold' this week...perfect for Christmas projects. I followed this tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers to make a little gift bag.

I stamped a random pattern of snowflakes (using some stamps from Lakeland) using gold ink on to plain red card before assembling my bag. I added a small snowman image ('Little Snowy' from the 'Holly-Jolly Christmas' set by Penny Black) mounted on some Nestie circles to decorate the front. So, having taken my inspiration from the song 'Frosty the Snowman', I'm entering this into the Cupcake Craft Challenge, where the theme is 'Sing a Christmas Carol'.
Here's a view of the side, showing you the shape of the bag:

I'm also going to enter this into this week's Our Creative Corner Challenge...where the theme is 'Holidays'...mine's obviously Christmas.
