Christmas duo- card and gift bag

Hello! Hope you're having a great Saturday so far! Have you checked out the current challenge at Jingle Belles yet? They have a guest Belle joining them this week and she has a great sketch for us to play along with! Click here to visit Allison Fillo's blog, Stampin When I Can. Here's her sketch for this week's JB challenge:

I decided that since the Christmas season is fast approaching that I should probably get a start on gift tags,etc. while I'm at it! So I made a bag topper to go along with my card.

I found the idea for gift bag toppers on Pinterest ( the best place on the web to spend way too much time browsing!!!). Sorry the card looks a little blurry but I have more pics to share.....
Here's a better pic of my card... I incorporated all elements of the sketch except for the three embellishmnets on top ... I just couldn't get them to work!!!! I inked up SU's  Greeting Card
 Kids on a diecut ornament and then colored her with my Copic markers.

The inside is  decorated with Michaels ornament stamps and a greeting from Flourishes called Sentimental Christmas. The cardstock / ink is from Stampin' Up! and the patterned papers are from Michaels' Recollection  Christmas  2011 paperline. The sparkly stickers are from American Crafts. I used an embossing folder ( Lifetstyle Crafts) for the banner on the card front. The diecut ornament and Merry Christmas were made with my Cricut ( Art Phiosophy and Artiste cartridges).
That's my Jingle Belles card for the Do You Sketch What I Sketch? challenge.
Thanks for stopping my blog today!
** Instructions on how to make this topper can be found here **
