A holly Christmas tag

Hello I am sharing my 2nd guest designer post today for the lovely Shery over at STAMPlorations We are half way through the current challenge of 

with this optional sketch
I decided to make a Christmas tag to add to one of the many presents which will be sitting under our tree very soon.
and traced around the outside to make a tag. 
I then used gold embossing paste  added an eyelet too

 I used the sketch too and added the sweet little snowflakes from the reindeer set and I also used the Christmas sentiment too.

Here is my finished tag.

I hope you can join in with the fun. You can use the theme and/or the sketch for you tag themed project. All the details are here
