Christmas Gift Envelope

Hi guys,

I have altered a gift envelope (from Papermania) to make it into a Christmas gift envelope, with matching tag:

I used handmade paper for the main image and matching tag, and a papermania urban stamp called Christmas tidings. I heat embossed both images with Papermania Seafoam white embossing powder. I used the full stamp for the main image and just the wreath on the gate for the tag. I wrapped the top of the image with red ribbon, and added washi tape to the bottom. I then added some velvet stickers. The tag I added to the eyelet, using a brad. As the brad didn't hold it tightly I also added some matching red velevt stickers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Merry Monday #285 Add a ribbon
Sweet Stampin' - Embossing
Alphabet Challenge - A for Anything but a card
MTTC #368 Bag/Box with matching gift tag (this is an envelope gift bag)
My Time To Craft!
Country View #62 Pimp it up (altered a gift envelope to make it Christmasy)

Chucky wanted me to take his picture - he is in his travel cage here -about to go on an adventure lol:
And my mini orange tree is fruiting again!
Thanks for looking,
