Christmas Tag for My Granddaughter

Heather is back with another challenge at her My Artistic Adventures blog, using her amazing digital collage sheets.  Challenge 13 is Christmas/Winter/Thanksgiving.  That's a broad theme--a great chance to enter with one of your creations.  Details are HERE.

And here's something extra that Heather is doing right now.   How would you like a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to use at My Artistic Adventures Etsy shop?  How, you ask?  Just check out the details HERE.

Here is my design team make for Challenge 13:

I used Heather's new Pink Victorian Vintage Holly Girl which can be found in her Etsy shop HERE

Pink Victorian Vintage  Holly Girl Christmas Angel tags Candy cane Ornament  Digital Collage sheet Printable

Note:  if you use a front and back to make a tag, as I did, be sure to cut out the back going in the "opposite" direction, so that when you put the two pieces back to back, they fit together. I sponged the edges with Ranger antique linen ink.

My granddaughter loves pink so you can see I added pink ribbons and lots of glitter.  And I found two tiny pink buttons to put on her coat.

You'll note that the tag comes with a tab at the top and bottom.  I decided to set eyelets on the tabs to keep the cardstock from ripping when I threaded the ribbon.  I hadn't used eyelets in years, but being the craft hoarder that I am, I still had the eyelet setter and eyelets in the cabinet.  I think the eyelets will help keep my cardstock from ripping when I thread my ribbon, and then redo it, and then do it again until I get everything just right.

When tying the bottom ribbon, I added a pink safety pin with 3 charms dangling from it for added interest.

I can't wait to see what you make!
