A Doggy Bag

Afternoon Folks!
Hope you're all OK?
Gosh, I'm not liking it being almost dark at 5 o'clock in the evening, but I guess the longer evenings do mean a bit more time to hide out in the craft room! I just popped by to share a project which I finished last night, two surprises here - it's not a card or a DT project. It's a gift bag using one of my all time favourite PB images called Ice dance. I was in The Works at the weekend and ended up bringing these cute gift bags (£1 for 3) and snowflake border die (£3) home with me ... I don't understand it but I can't seem to leave the shop empty handed lately!!! Does anyone else have the same problem?? Still I did put them straight to use:   

 A closer look to show off the new border die which I extended by adding another snowflake so it covers the whole panel:

 Here's a closer look, coloured with promarkers and pencil with a paper pieced scarf:

The papers are very old, possibly Dovecraft, from the bottom of my Christmas paper collection!
