Whimsie Doodles...TAG, you're it!



Hello all! This is my second post for this evening, believe it or not! I wanted to get this in before I get all distracted with finding Christmas lights to put up tomorrow. :) So this card is for November's Whimsie Doodles challenge; to make a tag, or incorporate one on a card. Since I don't make tags for gifts, I went with the second option. The adorable snowman image is one of nine from the 'Tis the Season set. I adore him! I love his scarf, his little carrot nose, and his little birdie buddy! This is a pretty simple card; I used a Sizzix die for the tag, a paper from a Target dollar bin set, a snowflake punched from a shimmery paint sample, a couple of sequins and a gem on top. Three different ribbons thru the hole of the tag, and a funky fiber tied around them to keep them in place. I placed the tag on a panel that was embossed and distressed, and adhered all that onto a dark blue base. I must admit, I am not very happy with how I chose to treat the sentiment, but it is done. *sigh* Whimsie Doodles is also having an extra special addition to this challenge. There will be two winners for this challenge. One random winner will win a free image of their choice from the latest release, and the second winner will be joining the team as a Guest Designer in January 2012!!! How freakin' exciting is THAT!!!!????? What a great opportunity for whoever the lucky winner turns out to be! Well, I gotta go get this linked up to the challenge! Have a great night...I plan on enjoying some Ben and Jerry's Half Baked some time later on! :)
