Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #24 (MMSC24)

Below is my take on the sketch using Gurlee Girl Designs Ribbon Girl and Winter Wonderland paper from K & Co. I colored her with Prisma Color Pencils and Gamsol, cut her out, and used paper tole to give her dimension. The panel behind her is embossed in with Cuttlebug Snowflakes. The black oval is diecut using a Spellbinders Oval and dry embossed with Divine Swirls. The red Triangles are sewn and dry embossed with Textile although most of it is covered by other panels. The bow has little bells attached to the ends. The present is paper pieced.
Stamps: Girlee Girl Designs Ribbon Girl
Paper: Real Red, Black and White CS, K&Co. Winter Wonderland Paper
Accessories: lace, gold baubles, gold bauble bells, sewing machine, Snowflake, Divine Swirls, Textile Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug, Prisma Color Pencils, Gamsol
