I made the background look like a Christmas tree by taking a little stamp from the retired Holiday Sampler and using 1st, 2nd, and even 3rd degree stamping with artichoke ink. This made the "tree" have really nice dimension. I just felt the cute ornaments on the tag from Tags So Much needed to be hung on a tree.

Oh my gosh, this is just beautiful -- it looks like a photograph. Your background technique is awesome and you were right, the tag (and the colors you chose along with ribbon) was just the right touch!!! You should be very proud of yourself and this should be submitted to SU (if you could find a non-retired pine stamp to substitute).
