~* Joyeux Noel - Christmas Altered Paper Bag with Tag *~

hehe, aloha!  Here's another altered paper bag with tag.  I think I will be making altered paper bags forever. There is just something about them that I love love love!
I used a stamp from The Greeting Farm stamp set - A Cheeky Christmas.
I have to say that my inspiration color was sort of an icey blue...unfortunately, I could not find some blue sprays so I mixed it up with some magentas :).
I layered on Melissa Frances Countdown to Christmas DPs.  There is a bunch of laces and trims, baubles and pearls, Stickles...loved blinging this project up!  The edges were all distressed with Distress Ink in tumbled glass.  The sentiment is from a Flourishes stamp set.  The holly leaves and berries are Prima.
The tag has the matching DP with some Stickles and the edges are distressed.
I am entering this project into the following challenges:
1. Splendid Stamping with the Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge: TWILIGH/Fantasy Theme - my project has a Winter Fantasy theme.
2. Craft Us Crazy - Challenge 30: Color Me Inspired - Use your favorite color and/or holiday theme - I used my favorite colors and it has a holiday theme :).
3. Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge: Feeling Blue - The blue color was my inspiration.  I added the other colors as accents.
Merci Beaucoup for stopping by and have a great day!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
Steph :)
