The layout is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and the colors are for the CC: Poppy Parade, Tempting Turquoise & White. Since I didn't have Poppy Parade ink, I subbed Real Red. I outlined the snowflake and sentiment using a Clear Star gelly roll pen to give it some sparkle. I do really love the new Verve dies that match the stamps...this tag is a favorite and I'm already planning to decorate Christmas gifts using this tag. I'm not happy with my Liquid Pearls...they always look lopsided to me! I wish I had added another circle layer on top of the scalloped Nestie but ATG 714 adhesive is there to stay once you put it down! :-)
STAMPS: Glad Tidings (Verve)
PAPER: Urban Prairie (BasicGrey), Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Neenah Solar white
INK: Real Red
ACCESSORIES: Baker's twine, Button, Liquid Pearls, CB, Nesties, A Cut Above tag die by Verve, Brad, Ribbon, Snowflake EF

I think this is gorgeous just the way it is! I am LOVING those Verve diecut tags and stamps---beautiful! And I think your pearls look great---I never use them because I can't get them even either! Stickles either!

So many fun things for the eye to focus on! Luv all the pearls around the scallop circle and I especially luv the pearl on the tag!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
