Guest blogger for a White Christmas

Hi peeps

My lovely fellow Chocolate Baroqueian, Sheila, is guest posting today. Pop over to Glenda's blog and see whats what. Take it away Sheila......

I stamped a small CB Holly Swirl in Adirondack Snow Cap white randomly over the tag and embossed it with clear powder; when the ink was dry I covered the tag with Antique Linen Distress Ink then stamped it with a CB Christmas Sentiment using Versafine Vintage Sepia.
The tree is from the Madonna of the trees theme plate.I stamped it with Versafine Olympia Green to get a good, sharp impression,embossed it with white Wow powder, coloured in between the branches with Shabby Shutters D I and glued it to the tag.
I made the flower from CB pointelle lace,white wired ribbon and a small burgundy rose,attaching the flower and silver branches with a strong brad, and using Glossy Accents to secure the rose and the other branches. I attached a strip of pointelle lace to the bottom of the tag with dst.
As a finishing touch I dabbed the tag with Icicle Stickles ,covered a small tree embellishment withAdirondack Snow Cap ,embossed it with white powder,attached it to the tag and added a white ribbon.
