CHRISTMAS TAG

Hello Everyone,
If you are here for The 12 DAYS OF CREEPMAS DAY 5 with SMEARED + SMUDGED... please scroll down.
I have here a Christmas tag that I unashamedly CASED from scrappellen.blogspot.com :-) her Tag was so gorgeous I fancied having a go myself and I had this little packet of wood reindeer that I didn't know quite what to do with. She makes the most gorgeous feminine things and my jaw just drops open when I visit her Blog. !! Her Tag inspired me and here is my attempt at something pretty girly ....

Now you know me - I don't often do 'girly' schtuff but I am quite pleased with this.
I used paper and main picture from  Stephanie -  La Passion du DigiScrap at The Digi Scrapbooking Boutique (and is a freebie at the moment ).
This is a No.8 tag in cream as the base. I stitched on the DP and stitched the main picture onto a piece of distressed cream card and stuck it over a piece of gauzy fabric and my snowflake.  I then made a border of lace with a Marianne die cut and threaded some pale blue paper through it where you'd normally put ribbon. The snowflake came from my friend Linda at Scrapcat Cards and the flowers are from my stash. Leaves and the other flowers/flakes were die cut with my Big Shot. I added some blue half beads and some Stickles for glitz but it doesn't show well when you photograph it.

Challenges I am entering:

2 Sisters Challenge 121 - Snowflakes
Our Creative Corner - Fabric + Stitching (I have gauze behind and stitching)
Basic Grey Challenge 83 - It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas
Delicious Doodles Challenge 14 - Anything Christmas with Blue
