Card made of Wrapping Paper

This card is inspired by this week's "Just Us Girls" sketch. I immediately thought of a Christmas gift when seeing this sketch. So the paper I've used is actually wrapping paper, and I added a red ribbon with silver edges to create the illusion of a wrapped up gift. I tied a large bow of red ribbon and I attached a little silver bell to it. The sentiment is made with a stamp from Panduro, heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I machine stitched with silver thread around the wrapping paper and attached it all to a silver card stock base. Finally I added 3 snowflakes as embellishments.

This card is entered into these challenges:
1) Just Us Girls - #165 - Sketch
2) Card Makin' Mamas - Silver and/or Gold
3) Fab 'n' Funky - #148 - 3 of something (snowflakes)
4) Try It On Tuesday - Christmas Sparkle
5) Sisterhood of Crafters - Embossing
