Peachy Keen Stamp challenge: Paper bag

Hi, I hope you had a great week-end.  We went to our first Christmas party of the year.  I even won a prize!!!
This time, at PKS challenge, we have to use a paper bag and also one of their stamps.
I used the paper bag as the background, because it's so thin, it embosses beautifully!  I used the Cracked folder with my Cuttlebug.  I stamped my favorite PKS face, Basic Paper Doll!  The other stamp is from SU as is the ribbon and the rest of the card stock.  I colored the scene with my new Copics, I still don't feel confortable with them but I guess it will come with time!
The star is cut using my faithful Expression and the George and basic shapes cartridge.  The gold piece of paper is actually a piece of white card stock and I smeared gold ink with an ink pad around the edges.  It's a lot cheaper than buying gold paper!!!  I got this tip from  Carousel Rubber Stamps.
