Paper Pieced Parcels

Hi and welcome to a post to announce it's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps.
This week out theme is-


This is my favourite style so here is my card.

This was influenced by a couple of challenges, Less is More, paper piecing and Time Out, Christmas with a twist of pink and or purple.
I first stamped my parcels on the die cut panel, then onto some scraps of co-ordinating pink Christmas paper from Papermania which has been in my stash for absolutely ages. Streamers from the same STAMPlorations set as the parcels were stamped and embossed in silver. The greeting is from a LOTV set, stamped in black. 
Fussy cutting the parcels was a nightmare, especially the ribbons, but looks quite effective in the end!
A few sequins were added for some extra sparkle and some shadow ws added with a grey Copic.. 

That's about it, very simple.
