Lights - I thought it was time to start making my Christmas cards and this challenge for my DT card at One Stop Craft Challenge was a good opportunity. The challenge this week is tags. Tags always scream Christmas to me.

We are sponsored by Fred, She Said and I choose this sweet, pre-colored image to work with. I started to get it uncolored, but I couldn't imagine it colored any prettier then they have colored her. Plus it is just nice to get a break from coloring once in a while.

I did add Diamond Glaze to the lights and Stickles to the scarf. I added some red bakers twine to the bottom of the image.

My DP is K and Company's Let it Snow.

I added a few holly leaves.

Here are my 3 tags. The poinsettia is a SB. I shaped the poinsettia with Sizzix Susan's Garden tool kit. The center is made using my Viva Decor pearl pen in Kiwi.
