Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and Blog Hop

Hi Everyone, just a reminder about the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and Blog Hop. The design team has been busy as usual to give you a bit more inspiration for the holidays, so go and join in the fun. Lots of prizes to be won from some wonderful sponsors.
This time around I have two projects to show you again, this time using the same image, It is from Fitztown and is called Winter 10. For my first project I have colored it in blue tones, and made it into an easel card. I used the dies from Memory box to make the snowflakes on the card, and I masked the image by printing it on copy paper and then made the background using Smoky Slate and Blue Sky ink to make the sky and then stamped the wonderful trees from Lovely as a tree into the background, I used some glimmer paper down the side, and tied off some ribbon, and made a bow then added a snowflake brad to the center of it.

For my second project I've used the same image, but decided to decorate a gift bag. I've used the same snowflake dies, or at least the border and added some others from the set onto it as well. the background paper is from DCVW and it sparkles as well, so altogether quite happy with it. 
thanks for looking
