One More Swap Card and a Christmas Tag

I realized after I posted the cards from our last SUper Friends swap that I inadvertently missed one.  So, here's Charlene's beautiful card from our last swap (sorry about that!): 

I love how she pleated the card stock around the focal image.  Such a neat touch!

I also have a Christmas tag to share with you.  Here's the front:

and here's the back:

I used the Perfect Pennants Die to create the scallop circle base out of Cherry Cobbler for the tag.  On the front, I layered on a circle of Brushed Gold Card Stock.  On top of that, I placed a piece of Watercolor Paper with the Poinsettia image from the Bells & Boughs stamp set.   I stamped the image with Jet Black StazOn ink, then watercolored using classic ink for the leaves (Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive).  I used Gold Lame Smooch for the centers. 

On the back of the tag, I simply attached a piece of Whisper White as a place to write a little note. 

For the finishing touch, I added a piece of the Quilted Cherry Cobbler ribbon from the Holiday Mini.

Can you believe December is almost here?!  (Or maybe already by the time you are reading this!)  My boys are so excited to start opening their advent calendars tomorrow . . . they've been counting the days until Dec. 1st, as well as to Christmas, ever since Thanksgiving!)

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check back soon to see some fun Christmas cards and projects, and hopefully I can get some photos taken tomorrow to show you the most recent swaps from my SUper Friends as well as what I just received back from the My Digital Studio printers!
