A shaped card

I got a fab little image this week, from Sassy Studios, for my weekly challenge over at the
Glitter n Sparkle blog...

...where we had to make a shaped card.
I struggled to come up with a suitable shape at first, 
but then remembered the trusty old shape -"stack of presents" -
which I hand-cut and paper pieced. 
I used some papers from docrafts, for the presents....
 which I though, were quite patriotic colours of our uk flag.
Or, I guess, they could also be for the US flag...with the star aswell!
The star sentiment is from craftwork cards. 
I used a selection of my promarkers
to colour the image, on the new card I bought last weekend at Sincerley yours craft show.
The card is super smooth - just right for my alcohol pens - and is 280gsm. 
(Bought at Limetree craft stand at the show)
