Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #222 Christmas Tags

Morning all,

There's a fab new challenge starting over at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge blog today - it's a Christmas tag challenge.  It's sponsored by My Grafico.

MYGRAFICO is a leading Digital Online store with Hand selected Designers. Our unique designs come with affordable prices. We offer Commercial Use high quality Designer cliparts, digital stamps, Photoshop brushes, creative paper sets, scrapbook ing designs, SVG cutting templates, pr-emade party printables and stationery templates.

I really struggled to choose which of their fab Christmas images I wanted to use so ended up using 4 and here's what I came up with:

My papers are from a  DCWV Christmas stack.  The gorgeous green pearlised card has such an amazing sparkle and was a special from Paper Mill Direct this time last year - it was so gorgeous I made sure I stocked up.  I used 3 punches for these from EK, Woodware, and Stampin Up.  The ribbon was from the Sonas Made stash coming very soon!  I coloured them with my Faber Castell Polychormo Pencils and finished them off with a wee bit of crystal Stickles - always a must at this time of year!

These images are just so flippin cute!

Pop on over and show us your take on this brilliant Christmassy theme, I would love to see what you all come up with!
