FTH sketch #89

A new week means a new I {heart}sketches challenge with From The Heart Stamps :)

Here's the sketch, and an optional inspirational photo too, should you wish to use it as well as the sketch and/or twist, which, this time, is to use a tag...

Join in the challenge, and EVERYONE who plays will receive a $1 discount code for the store, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to the store! :)
Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too.

Here's my card...

Now, I did start off with the sketch in front of me, but for some reason I went off at a tangent and the background isn't like the one on the sketch. No matter, I have use the twist, which is to use a tag.

The image is Seven Christmas Birds. However, I trimmed away 5 of them as these 2 drew my eye with their ear muffs and scarf. Plus they fit nicely onto a tag ;)
I coloured using my promarkers and added some 'snow' with a white gel pen.
The tag itself is hand cut from paper (SU 'ski slope', it's retired now though) and red cardstock, then I set a gold eyelet at the top using my cropadile. The bow at the top is a scrap piece of ribbon.
I also used a different paper from that ski slope dsp as my background, and teamed it with some gold mirri card and a spotty piece which was found in my scraps tub.
I used the same gold mirri card to punch out my stars and to cut out 'merry' using a memory box die.
'XMAS' has also been die cut using By The Letter dies by Dienamics.
