Papertake Weekly - When is a Card not a Card?

Afternoon crafters.
The answer to my question is.......when its a bag!
This week over at Papertake Weekly we are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl  and to be in with a chance of winning their stunning prize we want to see
cards with a difference.
Be sure to check out my fellow talented DT colleagues for lots of inspiration.
This is the first time I have made a paper bag card and had fun and games trying to make the paper bag. I wasn't lucky enough to have a ready made bag in my ever growing stash.

Front view of the card (click on the image to see a bigger picture)

The weather has been so grey in Oxfordshire it is causing me problems trying to get a decent photo.

I've used grey and pink bazzill card. The paper is MME Glitter Christmas. I've inked the paper and then stitched around the edge and finished it off with Liquid Pearl.
The image is from Kanban, coloured with Copics and finished with Stickles glue.
The poinsettia flowers and snowflakes are Marianne's dies. The holly leaves are taken from the Cuttlebug embossing folder, cut out and coloured with Copics.
The small sentiment that looks like a holly berry is from Lili of the Valley.
Finally I've added ribbon, twine, a brad and a sentiment from Nitwits.

I hope you like my card and hopefully you can join us this week.
Thanks for stopping by.
