Snowflake tag

It's...not to snowy here right now, actually.  Everything melted off a few days ago, and we're looking at the possibility of temperatures in the 60s this weekend.  I'm ok with that.  Still, there were a few challenges I was feeling like entering this week, so I shut the window blinds and imagined I was living in a winter wonderland. ;)

This tag is from Plantin Schoolbook at 4 inches.  The shadow is cut on blue and the actual tag is on patterned paper from Paper Studio's All Seasons II stack.  I cut the three snowflakes from Winter Woodland.  The biggest one was cut at 2.75 inches, and for the smaller two I just scrolled my size dial a few clicks each time.  I put Frosted Lace Stickles on each of the snowflakes.

I adhered the smallest snowflake directly to the tag, then the middle one is on some small foam dots and the big one is on my thickest foam dots.  I was afraid that putting white snowflakes on paper that also has white snowflakes would make it difficult to see, but I'm actually happy with the effect that it gave.  It reminds me of when it's snowing out and there are snowflakes all around, some farther away and some closer.

I put a line of diamond bling along the bottom of the tag and some shiny silver ribbon that was left over from my Christmas cards on the top.

I'm entering this tag in the following challenges:

Bitten by the Bug 2- Snowflakes
