Deck the Halls...Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #171~Anything goes, Happy Little Stampers November Sketch Challenge & Anything Goes, In My Creative Opinion~12 Days of Christmas Tags (Day 1)

Hello,

Time for Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #171

which is an *Anything Goes* invitation.  Yayyyy for those, because we know you'll bring immense variety and creativity to the gallery!  It's also a Design Team call, so if you're interested (nudge, nudge) be sure to read the details on the blog, create a card and add DT after your name. 

I'm still carrying on with my Christmas themed cards/tags, and for this week's challenge, I drew inspiration from Happy Little Stampers November Sketch Challenge

 and, for the image, from In My Creative Opinion~12 Days of Christmas Tags, inspired by Tracey's tag for Day 1

A simple card, really, using a Holly and Berries die, which I sponged with green distress inks and pounced with perfect pearls for some shine. The berries are red stickles (hard to see in the photo. The sentiment: another from my much loved Happy Little Stampers Mixed Christmas Sentiments set.


A second Holly and Berries die cut and ta dahh...a matching little tag.


I'm plotting and scheming some other ways to showcase this die...maybe shimmer paper...

Over at ATSM #171, you'll see plenty of marvelous *Anything Goes* creations by my talented team-mates. Please take a look, leave them some love and join us!  Extra incentive:  the winner will receive a $15 gift coupon for

Another worthwhile visit to your blog! A wonderful tag. Cool idea to choose a wreath that is actually larger than the tag itself - looks great! And your card is really pretty!
