Can you tell what it is yet?

Were you the annoying one in the family that would "inspect" all the parcels
under the tree and work out what was inside?
Tee hee, that was me in our house!!
Which is why this particular image makes me smile
What do you think of the parcel?
I copied the pattern of the holly paper using my Copics and then
added a dash of Perfect Pearls Interference Green over the top of the bow
 to replicate the sheen on the satin ribbon embellishment.
I also used Perfect Pearls (Sunflower Sparkle) on the ribbon slider chippie
.....well it is Christmas!!

You are the most awesome colourist, Jane! What a fab card... And the wrapping paper is fabulous! I went a step further when it came to guessing, I used to tear corners... even been known to go a bit further and tape it back up. LOL!

PS: the little one looks like my granddaughter "Norah."

You are so very clever Mrs. Love how you created the parcel and matching your ribbon, lol. Perfectionist. I hated opening up my presents as knew it would all be over too quickly.
