Doodle Pantry - Holiday Sheep Tote

I had time to play in my craft room yesterday so I made this little gift tote with cards using images from Doodle Pantry's Holiday Sheep set.
You probably seen several of these totes on my blog - just love them and have to make more :)
For this set I used Basic Grey papers from Eskimo Kisses collection. All the images were printed on watercolor paper and watercolored using SU markers and aquapainter.

Here is the tote - it's pretty simple, just added the image and a bow
and here are the cards that go with it:
card #1:
For this card I used the current Midnight Madness sketch. The flourishes are Jolees stickers and the flower is one of the lollipop ribbon flowers I made. I'm also entering it into Sparkle's Christmas Challenge (use 2 DP, 1 image and bling - sorry, no butterfly)

card #2 : simple layout just added some pearls and a big fluffy tulle bow.
card #3: more Eskimo Kisses papers and a simple layout

I think this set will make a cute little gift - what do you think?
I'm entering the set into If The Shoe Fits Challenge - any holiday (obviously I picked Christmas)

Materials:
Images & sentiments: Doodle Pantry - Holiday Sheep
Papers: DP - Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, CS - SU Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, white, pink
Coloring: SU markers, aquapainter, Tim Holtz distress ink
Embellishments: Large white brads, BG flat back pearls, Jolles sticker, ribbons
Other: Spellbinder Nestabilities, border punch
