"Nutcracker Tag" CDS SP and "COMMENT CANDY"!

Hello All!
Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
Today I am blogging about my versatile "Nutcracker Tag".


The DP is from Cosmo Cricket's "More Jolly by Golly" and the CS is my all time fave....Bazzill Swiss Dots. I popped the image for a 3D effect and added some gold embossing to it. I then stitched with gold and added a metallic gold ribbon. This tag really sparkles!
This is the flip side of the tag.


It could be used as a gift tag, a bookmark, or an ornament. It is done with this adorable "Holiday Nutcrackers" stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps.
Just for a twist today...I will be giving this tag away as "Comment Candy"! Just let me know what you think and next weekend I will draw from all of the comments on this post and the winner gets the tag. Just a tiny little way to let you know how much I appreciate your comments. ;)
Hugs,
True :)

I think it's gorgeous. I love to read and this would make an over the top bookmark! Also my Dad is nuts about nutcrackers and would love to find them as tags on his Christmas presents. Thanks for the chance at them.
