I used linen effect card for the base with a snippet of green paper and a silver peel-off sentiment. The image is from Penny Black 'in a pear tree' collection, stamped with Memento inks, cut with an Xcut die and with red Stickles, Sakura glitter pen and pearls added.
and this one shows the glitter pen a little better

While mooching around in Blogland I've been seeing quite a few tags and thought I should be getting some made so hunted around for a bit of inspiration and decided that the same Penny Black stamp would be ideal for what I wanted. When inking the stamp I was careful to clean off the partridge and also the bauble from the centre and stamped it twice - slightly offset - using 2 different shades of green. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and this time I added Liquid Pearls and silver gems to the image. I shaped the top, punched a hole and added the ribbon... all I need to do now is start buying some christmas presents to tie it to (but that will probably end up being a last minute job!)
