Snowman Tag

This week at Come and Get It Challenges it is a Bingo challenge. The idea is to pick a row, any row going vertical, horizontal or diagonal from the grid then make a card using those items, now I have a free space in the middle, so you can use anything for that, just let us know what it is in your post.

PearlLaceDie Cuts

Here is my card. I chose the line with pearls, free and rbbon.

I had fun making this tag . I had this piece of textured cardboard that I found in the recycle bin which I painted with gesso mixed with pearl EX Powders and Radiant Pearls. The picture of the tag does not show how the background sparkles in the light very well.

I added three rubber stamps. The snowman is by Michael Strong Rubber Stamps and the other two stamps are from my unmounted rubber stamp collection. I added glitter snowflakes, pearls and a ribbon to complete the tag.

This card is also my Day One as card captain at yahoo group Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps.  We have a lot of fun creating with Michael's stamps and every few months I like to take my turn as card captain. 

I was pleased how the tag turned out. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join us at Come and Get it his week. Bingos are so much fun - lots of room for creativity.
