HSS Color Challenge #96

Good Morning Stampers, 
Well it is that time again… A COLOR CHALLENGE!!! Yeah!!! I loved this color combo when I saw it I thought it TOTALLY makes me think of Christmas.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this color combo for the holidays, it is FUN and for me festive.  You have to play along this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments– who could resist this combo?!!!

So what did I create? Well JUST in time for the holidays, I thought I would make some gift tags… I mean lets be honest- I have NOT prepared at all for this Christmas.  I haven’t even started shopping let alone my Christmas cards, yeah I know- can you smell the irony?  So this was one thing that I NEEDED to get off my to-do list.  So this worked out great, I will have several printed for ALL my presents :-)
I LOVE the technique of color blocking and thought I would try it here for my tag, I made this with my WONDERFUL My Digital Studio software- LUV that Stuff!!!  I used the satin ribbon bows for the stocking toppers too, and I made them super tiny.
We learned this COOL technique at Convention this year, they showed us how to take the round part of a bow and make scalloped ribbon with several stacked on top of each other, it has to be my MOST favorite technique that I have learned so far.  It looks SO cool and then I added some white stitching on top to give the apperance of it being secured to the tag… I LUB these tags!!!
Hope you enjoyed today’s project, thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to pop on over to HSS to play along.
