QKR Stampede Challenge #220 - Chritstmas Tag

There's a new challenge at QKR Stampede and this week is make a Christmas Tag.  I chose image #2806 Do Not Open from Eureka Stamps (our sister stamp company).  I opened it in Silhouette Studio so I could change it around by moving the sentiment from the bottom to the side.  I colored it with copics, clear wink of stella on the gift and Christmas, and glossy accents on the berries.  The tag is from a 5 piece gift tag set in the Silhouette store and I made an offset for the matting.  Ribbon, twine, and plaid paper from my stash, To/From stamp from Sizzix framelets with stamps set, stamped with colorbox ink in cranberry, and sequins from ArtMinds.
