Waltzingmouse Tag-You're It! Challenge

If you check out Claire's blog she has all of the details about her latest challenge. She wants to see tags, not just any tags, elegant ones. The prize for the winner---about $200 USD worth of Waltzingmouse goodies of your choice!!! You can enter as many tags as you'd like and it will increase your odds of winning.

I made one tag last Saturday, but I just got around to getting some pics of it today for the blog. I have always loved the vintage style tags that Tim Holtz creates, but I've never been able to make anything like them. This tag was inspired by him:

I used crystal fine glitter to cover the sentiment for a frosty/Winter look. Here's a close up:

snowflake, sentiment (Walztingmouse/Seasons of Love - Tags)
musical background (Stampabilities/Composer's Dream)

Bundled Sage (Tim Holtz distress ink)
Vintage Tea Dye duo, Pure Poppy & Dark Chocolate (PTI)

Holiday stickers/red ribbon from Hobby Lobby
red rhinestone bling
fine crystal glitter
Metal bookplate (Ornate plates by Tim Holtz idea-ology)
