Christmas in July - Day 3

Over at Catch the Bug, the Christmas in July challenges are continuing. Day 3's challenge was anything but a card: either a gift or gift card holder. I chose to do a wine tag for a wine gift.

I really like the Christmas colors on this and the snowflakes go well with my image. I thought this was a frame it image but I haven't been able to find it on the Bugaboo website, but here is the tag version called 4 Snowmen Tag. I colored the image and just fussy cut around the frame and added all kinds of sparkle using Crystal Stickles and Red Stickles. I also used a white gel pen for some accents on hats and noses. Here's a closer shot.

The background paper is a scrap from my scrap box and I added some self-adhesive gem stones in the center of each of the big snowflakes on the designer paper. The tag base is green card stock. The image I made into a tiny little card so I could write something on the inside. I wrote: "Something to keep the chill away during the holidays!" The theme for the week is "Baby, it's cold outside!" A bottle of wine and a fire in the fireplace" What more can one ask for?
I am entering these challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today. I have a list of things to accomplish this week and I've slowly been ticking things off. Tomorrow is my last day at Head Start for this school year. The twins will have a two week break before they start the new year. I'll have to find out if their new teacher wants me to come help. Have a wonderful week!
