Christmas tag

Hello - I had this tag sitting on my desk for a week and then this sketch challenge over at the Paper Players pops up in my in box. WooHoo! Now I get to put it to use.

I had a few fir branches left over from the tree that I made using the new Concord and 9th dies. I glued it down onto a kraft tag and then added from there.

The berry sprig is a die from Poppy stamps. I used a Copic marker on the branch and then some liquid pearls for the berries.

Pine cone is made from a swirl flower die from MFT, I just used brown cardstock and cut a bit off to make it look like a pine cone.

Tiny red bow is made using the Bow Easy and hemp twine used at the top to make a multi-layered bow. I popped this up onto a white layer using foam tape to give it more dimension.

Sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink.  Stitched dies are from Lil' Inkers, MFT and SSS.

I'm linking this card up to the Addicted to CAS dimension challenge as well. They are celebrating 3 years, congratulations! Thanks for stopping in.
