Celebrate the Season Tag

What can I say about this tag....hmmmm, non-traditional colors?  Red and Turquoise?  Not really sure how it came about....but it started with the ribbon.  I knew I wanted to use the ribbon and I had the Studio G snowman stamp.
He had to have a red hat and scarf....and I kept interpreting the snow as blue...and it ended up kind of turquoise......so, I just went with it.  I embossed the tag base with my Cuttlebug folder. Then cut a scallop circle out of red with my Marvy punch.  To jazz it up a bit, I used my hole puncher and punched holes just inside of the scallops.  I colored the snowdrift and added clear stickles. 

I stamped out an Inkadinkado ticket stamp and colored in to match.  Regarding the ribbon, I didn't want the backside of the ribbon to show, or have the snowman upside down, so I ended up stapling the ribbon to the tag and I got what I wanted :)

Thanks for stopping by!!
