Christmas Card and Tag

Well it's another glorious day here in N.I., typical when the kids get ready to go back to school the sun decides to shine!!
When I got this lovely Whiff of Joy Confirmand Melinda stamp I thought it would look great as a Christmas card as well so I have had a go and made a little set, a card and a tag. I'm also going to make a box for it.
The stamp was paper pieced using fab Basic Gray christmas papers I had left over from last year. I have used distress inks for the hair and skin. Someone sent me some lovely little doilies recently and I have inked them around the edges and embossed them with Winter Wonderland embossing powder. Looks a bit like snow and ice on the card as it sparkles when the light hits it. I have used a thin white ribbon and a pale blue fibre to make a knot, the sentiment was made on the computer and edges with the embossing powder. The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and I have added some sparkle to them. I also used some punched out holly leaves and sprigs.
