Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Tag Me

Hello, friends.  There's a brand-new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week's theme is Tag Me - Add or Make a Tag.   I lucked out again with my DT image because it includes a kitty - yay!  This digi is called Skull Girl and Kitty and it's from Bugaboo Digi Stamps, one of our generous sponsors.

Although the image is Skull Girl and Kitty, you won't notice any skulls on my card LOL.  I wanted to show how versatile this digi is, so I made a Christmas card and covered the skulls with some gems and a star button tied with twine.  Here's a pic of the digi so you can see the skulls on her dress and in her bow.

I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils.  I made the tag with an X-acto template, cut with my craft knife, embossed the blue section with Cuttlebug snowflakes, and tied it with white ribbon from Offray.  On the bottom of the tag is a torn scrap of white cardstock, onto which I stamped the sentiment (wood-mounted stamp from Plaid) with Ancient Page Turquoise and also inked around the edge.  For the background of the card, I used this fabulous snowy sky paper from Doodle Pantry - Snowman Pile-up set and added a torn scrap of white on the bottom to look like snow.  You will notice I also added Icicle Stickles all along the snow.  Then to finish off the card, I added a couple of snowflakes, a tree, and four pearls.
I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Tag It challenge - as usual, we have some great prizes up for grabs, thanks to our generous sponsors:
Bugaboo Digi Stamps - 7 images
Floppy Latte - $6 gift certificate
Stitchy Bear Outlet - $10 gift certificate to be spent on images from

The Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow fan I am with skulls is cool but I like with the skulls covered in yours. Thanks for visiting my blog & commenting.
