Here's my lucky tag for this lucky day 12.12.12 over at Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist! I was inspired by Jennifer Maguire's beautiful tag for both subject matter and colors. I love her little touches of bling, colors, and three snowflakes.
Hmmm...snowflakes! Think I'll enter this in Simon Says Stamp's Snowflake Challenge too.
The hardest part of this was making the crystal drops to hang from the birdcage but I love the look! It's a little hard to see in my photos but I used the Cricut snowflake embossing folder then antiqued the edges of my tag with Broken China Distress Ink and the flakes with a frost white Colorbox stamp pad. I chose not to add a sentiment this time around.
The bird and cage were both embossed with embossing powder to add some fun texture. I used several diecuts of Martha Stewart snowflakes and pine bough with a craft store silk flower for a little zing to this otherwise blue creation.
