A Sassy Tag

Happy Wednesday friends.  I hope you're having a wonderful week so far - we're halfway to the weekend, yeah!  I have been trying to work on my stash of Christmas cards and thought I would try something a little different and make a tag.  

This little sweetie is Sugar Nellie's Simply Sassy Secret Santa.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and applied Fluffy Stuff to the fur on her outfit.  I used Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint around the edges of my paper to give it a snowy look.  I've also been seeing so many of you talented ladies using cheesecloth and I love the way it looks on your projects, so I gave it a try.  I used a bit of lace and then punched various sizes of snowflakes which are covered with Glamour Dust - I love that sparkle!  I added some chocolate brown pearls to some of the snowflakes.  The sentiment ticket also has some paint and sparkle on the edges.  I had ordered that huge roll of seam binding awhile back and finally dyed some with Tim Holtz's Tea Dye Distress Ink. 

I will probably use this tag on my niece's Christmas package.  She loves these Sassy images and I think this tag would be perfect for a young teen girl, don't you?  

Thank you for stopping by.
