Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge #153-"Anything Goes"

Happy Sunday dear crafty friends!

Today at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia we begin our final challenge of 2017 with both teams bringing you our creations today!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
DP is Recollections...
I couldn't find any gingerbread paper in the vast array of paper that I have so I created my own using the little gingerbread stamp from the new Magnolia collection and some embossing powder...
 this darling image is "Gingerbread Tilda" from the new CP 2017 collection...
coloured with my copics...
dusted with Aged Taupe Frantage...
matted on cheesecloth...
closer view...
ribbon is the crocheted wired ribbon that I bought from Michael's...
I added a gingerbread charm and two tiny gingerbread cookie cutter decorations...
I added lace and tiny gingerbread buttons with red embroidery floss to the bottom...
the sentiment is from the same Magnolia collection...
I stamped a candy cane and tiny gingerbread from the same collection...
dusted with Aged Taupe Frantage...

Another gift bag done!!  Now come on over and join us at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia...we LOVE when you inspire us!!
