And now on to my creation....


I used the SVG TAG cut file for the tag base that matches the 
TAG IT stamp set.
I also created a shadow layer for it in the Silhouette Software.

Ornaments and Sentiment both from the
GET YOUR JINGLE ON
stamp set.
Ornaments colored with Spectrum Noir markers.
A little bit of pattern paper and gold ribbon added
so that this tag can hang from your Christmas Tree
or be attached to a gift.

Here's a close-up of the sentiment:
