Ok now it is my turn to show you what I have made and I went with the card with tag.

 another pointing downwards hopefully the shine and glitter is a little clearer

I used a tag download from our sponsor. I have got my fingers inky with this one and used lots of ink and sprayed everything. The white snowflakes was done in white and heat embossed with clear ink and then spray added because of the embossing the ink didnt stick to it and i wiped off then added lots and lots of glitter . Some fibres to add some interest and that stunning Joy snowflake die on the edges which I was the lucky one to win at ELAINES .(thanks sweetie )
So now it is your turn but fancy a peep at some more stunning examples then pop along and checkout the rest made for your inspiration HERE
