Polkadoodles Challenge Week #49 Anything Goes

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from Polkadoodles. This week, as always, the challenge is Anything Goes.

I used another of those gorgeous images and papers from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection and decorated a gift bag to make my Christmas gift wrapping a bit easier. (I hate wrapping presents as I am pretty rubbish at it, so I much prefer putting them in some tissue paper inside a pretty bag.)
