Christmas tag in traditional colors

Hello everyone.

We have a fabulous new challenge for you at House of Cards this month!  You can be inspired by the colors or include the holiday theme on your card or be like me and use both.

To day it is the first day with snow here, and I have been in real Christmas mood here. So this months challenge was just all joy. And I wanted to start making some tag for the Christmas presents later this season. And here are the first one.

So here is my lovely Christmas Santa tag, or Nisse as we say here in Norway.... our nisse are small and lives in the barn or in the woods and are all kind to the animals and do tricks on us humans these weesk before Christmas. So if anything goes wrong, blame it on the Nisse. :D

I always have enjoy to color since childhood. And for this tag I use one of my very first stamp ever, one I have very dear and want more of the same style. So if you know of any let me know ;)

This one is from Ladybugs and Friends, and I don't know the designer of this. So if any know the desinger, I like to know. 

This one I have used a lot, and used with my Promarkers and watercolor on, but never my Prismacolor. So of course this one had to be done with my pencils and on my craft cardstock. 

I just use the pencils, and no mediums needed when blending on craft or sketch paper. Started to ink it up with Memento London fog, a ligth gray and then colored it.

Die cut it with a tag die from Die'desire. Inked up the edges with the same ink. It needed some more so I used my Martha Stewart branch punch and punched out some branches in green scrap papers and added some red half pearls and a dark green ribbon.

So hop over to the House of Card challenge this month and enter your craft and enjoy the first of winter and snow. I know I will.

Here is the graphic for the challenge
