White Christmas

I called this card White Christmas but I'm starting to wonder if we will have one.  
It is unusually warm and rainy here in Canada.

I have been inspired by the many wonderful tags I have seen for Christmas and wanted to make a card with a tag on it so this is what I came up with.
I pulled out this stamp from Serendipity, painted it with my Brushos and stamped it onto a tag I cut using a die from Reverse Confetti.  Next, I embossed the bkg using a plate from Spellbinders then stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts.  To add a bit of sparkle, I edged the card in gold and added a gold twine to finish it all off.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- TAG IT

HLS Mixed Media- ANYTHING GOES

Use Your Stuff- IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME


The Male Room- CHRISTMAS

Serendipity- TAG IT


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Hero Arts, Serendipity/ Memento bl ink/ Brushos/ paint brush/ Spellbinder E Plate/ Gold Pen/ gold twine/ bl pearl
