Gecko Galz Christmas Tag

Gosh where did November go???? Here we are at the beginning of December and I didn’t post all my Gecko Galz samples for being one of their guest designers for November. Here is a tag I made.
A tag die-cut from corrugated card and painted with some tissued tape over the top..
On the edge snow flurries die, inked and distress glitter added.
Tim Holtz banner die to add the sentiment.
A metal charm painted with distress paints and glitter. A crinkled,inked ribbon.
And this gorgeous GG imaged, aged with distress inks and a few more snowflakes added.
Right, lets see if I can get to grips with December projects and get all the Christmassy ones in before the big day.

Have a great advent and preparations for the festive season.
