Something's Under the Tree

Okay, so it may be a little early for wrapping Christmas presents and I usually like to get past Halloween before I put up the tree. I was having some fun today in my craft room and the challenge over at ABC Christmas this week is Under the Tree so this is the package that someone will find under my tree this year.

I have once again used my Copics to colour the new Sneaky Tilda from this year's Christmas release. She is a cutie and it is nice that she will be so versatile, I can see her being used on many Birthday cards in the future. I added some Candy Cane Stickles to the bow on her present because Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a little sparkle and shine.

I have matted Tilda using papers from a couple of the Basic Grey Christmas collections. I love that I can purchase some of the papers each year and they often work together so nicely.  The circle mat has been popped up so that I could add some lace from my stash to give the bag some frill. I have added more frills to the top of the bag using some of my Martha Stewart punches.  The Poinsettias have been stickled for some extra sparkle and I have used some rhinestone flowers for the centres to really make them shine. Lastly I created a little tag on which I have stamped and embossed a little sentiment.

I hope that you will all join me and create a little something for under your tree this year. Like I said at the top of this post, I was having fun today so be sure to pop by again tomorrow and see what else I have to share.

I will also be entering this into the following challenges.
