Joanna Sheen GDT 'Christmas Wishes'

Good morning everyone-I am so so so excited to share the new challenge over at Joanna Sheen's fantastic new challenge blog and show you my project for my Joanna Sheen Guest design slot too :-) Our theme this month is 'Christmas Wishes' so please come and join in-its perfect for your Christmas makes! 
I just wanted to say I am so grateful to the team at Joanna Sheen for giving me this wonderful opportunity, I appreciate it very much :-)
I made an easel card with a drawer and a matching gift bag, details below :-)
 For the easel card with a drawer I used a House Mouse image from the Singing Angels rubber stamp set available at Joanna Sheen's store here. I coloured them with my Promarkers and very carefully cut round them with a crafting knife to show the papers as the background. I used a gorgeous set of HOTP papers I got free with a magazine for these projects. I also used Papermania capsule collection jewel brad for my drawer handle, Card candy, Green cardstock, a gorgeous chipboard greeting that matched with the House Mouse image and some lovely christmas ribbon from Kars.
For my gift bag I carried a lot of the same products to it so it matched the card. For this image I used the House Mouse Winter Rubber stamps Candle set available here. I also coloured my House Mouse image with my Promarkers, but also masked it and made clouds around him in the tree to make him more realistic. I added Glamour dust to the snow so in  the light it really shimmers. I added a 'Merry Christmas' chipboard greeting.
