December Retro-Fresh Challenge: Tag-It

This month's TGF Farm Fresh Challenge blog Retro Fresh challenge is Tag-It!  The assignment: create a tag or use a tag on a project featuring a TGF image.  I'll be honest, I am not a fan of making tags, but I don't mind using them on something else. 
Here is mine...another Christmas card featuring TGF's OA Just for You and Tea-rrific sets (tag and swirl inside).  Now, the OA Just for You meets the "at least 6 months old" for the Retro part of the challenge, but I snuck in the other set...shame on me!  The base is Old Olive with layers of Very Vanilla, cherry and DSP from DCWV and is a gate fold card with stitching around the outer edge of the layers.  The border punch is lacy scallop border from Martha Stewart/EK Success.  The ribbon is grosgrain from Michael's.  Amelia is color in copic.  The ground under her feet is done making lots of little dots in several shades of the E range of colors - Sand, Oriental, Chamios, etc.  The tag is stamped in Wild Wasabi ink and the snowflake is from the SU Season of Friendship, stamped with Whisper White craft, then sprinkled with red embossing powder.  It is punched with a 3/4" cirlce and mounted on a 1" circle using a dimensional.  I used a bit of twine to kinda make it look like an ornament.

I absolutely love how many TGF images can be used for more than one kind of project.  They are, by far, one of the most flexible images I have ever worked with.  Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has up their sleeves at the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge blog.  Thanks for looking!  April
