More pictures of my project, which was one of the gifts I sent my secret sister, Connie:

The metal sentiment tag from Ide-Ologie (TH) and tons of alcohol ink distressing:

More TH metal tags, with this fun ribbon (leaf):

The Creative Embellishment wooden letters also distressed:

The background was created on upcycled metallic cartoon packing, alcohol ink, and an stencil also from TH:

I also used the Bears, reindeer, and leaves ribbon, Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium papers, Ide-Ology embellishments.
I entered this project to:
Graphic 45 Christmas facebook page for the December Challenge.

I was inspired by the red hues and the metallic accents, and of course the warm and fussy feeling.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this project and decide to enter our fun challenge.

Happy New Year
