A Tower of Gifts

Good morning.  How are your Christmas preparations coming along?  Not long now and I am a happy bunny as I have finished work now until the 4th January 2016. YIPPEE.

Going out with my Mom today.  We have a trip to the hairdressers and then lunch and maybe a little Christmas shopping.

A new challenge at Crafty Girlz begins this morning.

Challenge 10 has a theme of 'Christmas Sparkle'

Our sponsor for this month is

I have used a digi image called 'A Tower of Gifts'.

Once I printed my image and coloured it in using Sakura pens,I  fussy cut it using my BSC and a 1mm border.  I then cut a mat in black with a 2mm border.

I decided to make it into a tag so I chose a tag shape from my library of shapes in my BSC.  I sized it and put a seam allowance around it.  I then added the same shape again, sized it but did not add a seam allowance.  I put my two pieces of card onto my mat, scanned them and moved my images onto the relevant card and cut.  Perfect mats.  

I embossed my smaller tag using a free embossing folder I had from a magazine of snowflakes.

I added some gold organza ribbon and a bow plus a flower onto the bow and finished off with some Tonic Nuvo glitter pearl drops - the copper colour.

Thank you for visiting and I do hope to see you again soon.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family.
