Santa Brings ........

JustRite Challenges begin again! They just released new sets of Christmas stamps and they are wonderful as always. To celebrate the new release the challenge is based on Christmas. You must make either a shaped card or tag using a Christmas theme.
I based my whole tag on JustRite's stamp "Dear Santa I Can Explain" from the Holiday Cheer Set.
As you can see in the wheel. I used the candy cane border. With JustRite stamps you can interchange the borders. I used the Christmas Nested Frames sentiment put it through the TH notebook paper eb folder, sponged with TH antique linen so it looks like a wood sign. I wanted to drape the sign in one of the borders so I fussy cut it leaving the bottom off.
The wheelbarrow shape was cut from TH grunge paper with my Cricut Walk in My Garden covered with dp and TH Rock Candy Crackle and Stickles. I searched my craft room for something I could use as coal, trying several items and liking none. I went to Hobby Lobby and found Crystal Dazzlers, I'm amazed how much they really look like coal and bring the "dressy" to the tag. The Tag is 4 1/2 inches.
I hope you like it.
Hugs
Colleen
