House Mouse Christmas Tag

Happy Tuesday everyone.... I managed to combine three challenges in this adorable tag...
Today's colour challenge at Splitcoast Stampers - CC238 - pretty in pink, going gray and sage shadow... Two technique challenges TLC239 - make your own layered buttons and TLC240 - Foil embossing.
This cute little House Mouse image is called "Santa's Little Helper". I coloured it with prismacolour pencil crayons and also water coloured part of it. Fun flocked the hat brim and pom pom. Matted image with pink. Made the layered button, drew and cut out the tree - then embossed it. I have some large chip board tags - I traced around it onto white card stock and cut it out - then layered some tin foil over the white c/s and wrapped it around the edges, ran it through the cuttlebug with snow flake folder. Assembled the tag - sewed on the HM image and button. Punched out the top hole and a smaller hole on the top of the tree. Attached the star eyelet. Glued the white/foil tag over the chipboard tag. Attached the large eyelet - coloured the eyelet with silver metallic pen. Tied on the pink ribbon and silver cording..

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping

Hugs - Pat
