Joan's Weekly Challenge #11 Animal Winter Theme Tag

Good Morning Ladies,
Another Monday morning. The weekend was great. We purchased our first Christmas gift of the season. We are a little slow this year. The children are grown and it won't take as long to do the shopping.
Joan's Weekly Challenge #11 Animal Winter Theme Tag is a two part challenge this week. Meaning you can do a card and a tag. Yesterday I posted a card at Joan's. Today I am posting my tag. Check the challenge out here..
requirements are:
Make a card or tag using some kind of animal
Use a die
Use some kind of embossing
Create a winter scene
And here is my tag.....

I used a large luggage tag that measures 8 1/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches. I cover the tag in snowflake paper. My embossing is the horse and man. They are embossed in black and colorized with copic markers. I then hand cut them. They were the inspiration for this tag scene. The lamp post is a cheery lynn die from Joan's cut from silver mirror card. The country house is a memory box die from Joan's cut from white pearl embossed cardstock. The tree is a spellbinders die cut from mirror card. The bottom of the tag looks like an icy street. I created this using glossy accents and diamond dust. The top of the tag has a pearl garland. For my tag ties I used white fiber, silver fiber, and blue velvet ribbon. I make my tag ties long just because it creates a pretty finish to any tag. 
This challenge has been a spring board for so many ideas. They are all floating around in my head. We'll see how many more come out in art.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog



So very creative! Love all the sparkle and especially the lamp post!

Lori, I love your use of the dies and how you used the tag sideways. Very clever!

Thanks so much for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our weekly challenge.
