snow-flurries !!

stamps: more merry messages from stampin up! , spring jubilee by pink paislee
inks: archival ink (jet black), tim holtz distress ink pads (peeled paint, shabby shutters, barn door& spun sugar)
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock, manila tag
dies/punches: tim holtz alterations on the edge (snow flurries, Martha stewart snowflake border punch
extras: glossy accents, sakura (clear star)

i created this tag for another present in a bag. i combined the colour scheme, sketch and snowflakes challenges for this one and i think it has worked well. i inked the tag using the green distress, then stamped some subtle twinkles in the same colour to add interest to the background. i cut the snowflakes borders and coloured them red to pop against the green. the band was coloured pink (it is pink honest ... i know its not obvious in the picture!!) and stamped with the sentiment. i added extra detail with mini punched snowflakes to tie the pink in further. i sparkled these and the edges of the red snowflakes for that essential finishing touch for christmas.
