A new creative cottage challenge with a pink gem again!

Hi everyone! My apologies for being absent the last 2 days, it's getting busier than normal around here. It's xmas play time for the girls this afternoon along with parties galore for the next 2 wks!
Today there is another challenge starting over at the creative cottage and this time it will run for 4 wks rather than 2 and the challenge is to make a xmas card with matching gift bag/box.
I have chosen to use the papers from the cute gingerbread lane kit and teamed them up with this adorable digi from pink gem designs. To go with this, I have made a treat cone, the template for which can be downloaded from Brenda Walton here.

I have used this cute sentiment stamp also from Pink gem which you can fill in the recipients name and age, how cute?!! I have also followed the sketch over at sketch saturday for this card and have used some bright orange ribbon from my stash and some fabby flowers from wild orchids.
The ribbon on my treat cone is from Ikea and I have used an MS punch to decorate the DP at the bottom of the cone. I have gittered the curved edges and filled with sweets. Don't worry this doesn't go on our tree as it wouldn't last 10 seconds with my 3 about (or me lol!)
Here is a better view of my card with adorable image. I have used fun flock on his hat and scarf for some extra fluffyness! I have also used a branch punch for the foliage at the top of the image.
I am also entering this into Totally stampalicious wrap things up challenge (a gift bag), Incy Wincy tree dec challenge (this should go on the tree but won't in our house!), Shabby tea room tis the season, Tuesday taggers deck the halls, Top tip tues use ribbon and creative inspirations xmas gifts.
Thanks so much for coming by to see me again, I hope you can join in with our challenge this month, plenty of time to do so! Check out what the other DT have made too! I will be back later with my new offering from Pink gem designs, hugs to all
