Week 46: Digi Chooseday - Presents or Gifts.

Hi all :-) 

This is my first project for the Digi Chooseday team :-) xx 


This weeks challenge is: Presents or Gifts 

You dont have to use Polkadoodle products to enter however please check out the collection I used for this projects because it's so pretty. 

Work & Play Collection 5 FESTIVE HOLLYBOBS Collection 

You can find it here  

This is the project I made:

I used a cutting file on the Silhouette cameo to cut out the shadow box. Then I made the presents by printing out the beautiful papers from collection onto card and adding ribbon and bows.

I then coloured the little Elf (so cute!!) image with my new Spectrum Noir Pens and made it into a background.

The little ticket sentiment is also from the collection so I added this to my project to give it more depth.

Hope you like it and I look forward to seeing your makes
