Happy Monday Challenge...

Good Morning!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  There is a great challenge over at Crafting with Deedee's Digis.  This week we're making tags, tag shaped cards, cards that feature tags.... What fun!!  So I set out to create another Christmas tag.

I also used the sketch from Sketch Saturday which was really fun to use.  I found a scrap of this funky Christmas paper which I thought would be perfect for these fun-loving penguins that can be found in a set called Merry & Bright.

Here's a close-up of the image.  Hopefully you can see that I added Diamond Glaze to the light bulbs to make them look like real glass.  I also added a touch of gold Stickles to the star for a little more shine.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Green Galore, Real Red (SU!)
Paper:  unknown
Copics:  B05, C8, C10, G05, R27, R29, W-3, Y06, Y11, Y15, YG63, YR16
Tools:  Border punch (Martha Stewart), Oval punches (SU), 1/4" square punch (SU!)
Embellishments:  Gold Stickles, White puffy paint, Diamond Glaze (Judikins), clear baubles (Michaels)

I hope that you like my tag and that it inspires you to join the challenge at Crafting with Deedee's Digis this week.  Now is a great time to get started on all the Holiday greetings and package adornments.  And if you still have some Thanksgiving/Fall greetings to work on, you're in luck!  All Fall digis are on sale for $1 this month only!   Have a super day and Happy Monday!

What a fun and festive tag, Melissa! I love all the little extra details you added, like the glitter on the star and the glaze on the lights -- just beautiful! Hugs, Deedee
