Christmas Gift Bag in non-traditional Colors

There's a new challenge over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week's optional twist is to make something with "Button(s)".
I've used 2 digital DPs from Panda Bear Designs' "Chocolate Dreams Paper Pack 2" - you can find it in store over at Stitchy Bear Designs, our sponsor for November.

Non traditional Christmas colors is something that has grown on me this year, and I quite like the combo og beige, browns, white and gold.
I printed using Bazzil paper, I quite like the textured look it has. I decorated the bag with a die cut corrugated paper star, twine, button and a gold glitter embossed Christmas sentiment on vellum.

I'd also like to enter my gift bag in these challenges:
1) Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge) - Bingo (Glitter+2 DPs+Diecuts)
2) Sparkle N Sprinkle - Anything Goes (I used Embossing Powder)

I think these colours for Xmas are great and I don't really see them as non traditional, the earthy feel reminds me of twigs of the tree! The texture is fab and the star is the star here!
