One down...

Many more to go!  I don't know where I'll be for the holidays so I'm not sure what to do.  If I drive north I can pack up the car.  If I stay in the south then everything will need to be packaged and shipped.  This is making me think a little harder than usual.  Can you smell that?  It smells like burnt hair, that's me thinking hard.  Did you see that?  That was a flash of light.  That's me getting an idea.  Jewelry.  Of course!  Jewelry fits in small packages and ships easily too.  Hmm.....
This is yummy gift bag is for a Baby's 1st Christmas.  It doesn't have to be that, it could be for an wintry occasion but this one was made for a particular baby and the back of the tag is addressed that way.  This is probably the first time I've tied this ribbon in a bow and didn't think it was too much.  It's so beautiful but it's so wide that it often looks like too much on a card, well at least to me when I tie it.  When I see it on other people's work it looks great to me, just can't see it in mine.  This close up is to help show the bling snowflakes.  I added a large one to the top of the one printed on the tag and smaller ones to the big pink brads.  They look so adorable all dressed up. 

So here's the deets:
Stamp:  My Favorite Things Pure Innocence - "Presents for You"
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black; Ranger Tattered Rose
Paper - My Mind's Eye "Wonderful Winter" pad
Miscellaneous- copics, Spellbinder's nestibilities "Labels 8" for image and mat, inverted scalloped circles for snowflake; Elements large pink brads; Hero Arts gemstones for large sowflake bling on tag; Memory Box jewel stickers for smaller snowflake bling on large brads; Jei Bowlin Vintage Style Sew On buttons; Mays Arts wide pink and white ribbon; white damask ribbon through bow, twine through tag
