Penny Black gold and presents challenge

It has been a while since I posted but I have been a busy beaver. Getting ready for Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I rarely buy presents as I love being creative and making something special for everyone.  Here is a tag that one of my lucky friends will get on their package this year.

I used a manilla tag and coloured it with Tim Holtz new distress ink Festive Berries and Vintage photo. I attached gold snowflakes I punched out using a Martha Stewart punch and a ribbon from my stash. The image is By Penny Black titled Gift of Giving which is coloured with copic markers. I love the Mimi stamps. Its hard to see in the photo but the bows on the presents and the little dots on her scarf have been enhanced with gold Stickles.

I am entering this tag into the Penny Black Saturday challenge week 177 found at
