Fabulous Colour Combo Challenge at Lawnscaping

This week's Lawnscaping Challenge has started and I'm so excited!! I just love the wonderful colour challenge:
I was inspired by all the beautiful creations by the Lawnscaping DT and went right to work creating a gift bag for the challenge.
I stamped the snowflakes on the bag in an ink shade a little lighter than the kraft bag. I used turquoise ink to colour some white paper and then misted my Penny Black Diamond Pattern stamp with some water and stamped in onto the turquoise paper. I just love the results (but the picture doesn't really show it very well.)  I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment in black (I tried turquoise, but it didn't look good). 

I paper-pieced the Lawn Fawn snowman and popped him up with some foam adhesive. I folded the top of the bag and tied a ribbon (from Michaels) around the top. I tried a bow, but felt the ribbon was too bulky.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great night!
