Christmas in April

Good morning all,
Well I it certainly feels like Christmas here, the wind is bitter! And today for me it's back to work after the Easter holiday. Once again the time has flown and unfortunately I haven't accomplished all that I set out to do!
Today over at CRAFT challenge we have a brand new challenge. 
It is our Christmas Challenge week - each month one of our challenges will be a Christmas challenge so that we can all get ahead with those Christmas cards.

Our fantastic sponsors are......

 HopeJacare        A Day for Daisies        

  Flonz              DigiDarla

I decided to make a tag this time for a change using a simple image from
A Day for Daisies called ‘three presents’
I teamed it with a Katie Pertier Christmas blendable (Christmas Blendables N0 4)  to create a simple scene.

I cut the tag using my large Go Kreate Tattered Tag die 
The bottom layer is Kraft card; Th middle Layer is plain red cardstock and the striped paper is from Katie Pertiets Vintage Christmas Paper set.
The Doily was made using a Cheery Lynn Die
The Snowflakes were cut using a Marriane die set.
The flowers are Wild orchids.
The Ticket is a Cuddly Buddly sentiment digi stamp.
The ribbons, bell are and cute Santa Peg are from my stash.
Beneath the flowers you can just make out the holly sprig again cut with a Marianne die and coloured lightly with Bundles Sage Distress ink.

I am entering this into the following challenges

Have a great day and enjoy the challenge.
