Pixie Cottage Challenge #99

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!  Wow Christmas is less than 3 weeks away--Unbelieveable for me :0)
Today is another Pixie Cottage Challenge 
Remember you can use the sketch below and/or make a "Last Minute Gift"
As you see~~ I made a Christmas Gift Bag using the sketch!!!  I so LOVE how this turned out is a gift in itself~~I suppose I should put alittle gift inside~~Hee Hee
Image is Sandra Hammer's "Eerie Books"--I really enjoyed coloring this image.  Funny thing is that my Mom came to visit a few weeks ago and saw this image on my desk and wanted to take it home with her--I sadly had to say "NO WAY" I need to create something with it--so maybe I will surprise her with it for christmas--can't tell you what will be inside cuz she reads my blog **LOL**
The layer behind image is made with kraft paper and Inkadinkado background christmas stamp which I stamped using TH walnut stain ink.  All edges inked with the same TH ink.  Flowers are Wild Orchid which I inked edges also and branches are Nellie Snellen and McGill punches and then of course sparkled with silver glitter glue.  SU punches created the Hero Arts stamped sentiment.
Shows dimension~~stamped candle 2 more times.  Candle popped up with zap dots and flame was given 3 layers with zap dots---not sure yet if I like these better than my regular foam tape.  They are clear so you don't see them :)  Candle was coated with diamond glaze and dish it has melted onto was coated with silver glitter glue.
Well friends this is my first time trying "The Reflection Technique"~~What do ya think??  I do like :D

Now be sure to check out the rest of the DT creations~~they are AWESOME!!!!  Click Here to view them all.  Hope you have time to join in this fun challenge ;)
God Bless
