Merrie Xmas from Alison

Hello Stampers! It's my last post of the year, & I have a last minute Christmas card to share with you today.
I took a size 10 manila tag (8.5 x 4.125 inches), and ripped about 2.5 inches off the end.
I used a Ranger craft scraper to swipe sky blue Studio paint randomly on my tag, then spritzed some Dylusion inks, crushed grape & squeezed orange, through a couple of Crafter's Workshop stencils.
I stamped some script (Calligraphic Mat 11) with manganese blue Archival ink, & snowflakes (Christmas Greetings 2) with deep purple Archival, then edged the tag with the deep purple ink.
I stamped the little girl image from Victorian Christmas 1 on my tag, then on the leftover piece of my manila tag, I stamped the image again. I cut out the little girl & fireplace, then used the Dylusion Inks & a waterbrush to watercolour, before attaching it over the top of the image on the tag.
I coloured some white ribbon with the crushed grape Dylusion ink, tied it to the tag, added a couple of silver charms, then matted the tag on a kraft card to finish.
I'd like to thank everyone for the wonderful support & comments I have received over the year.
Wishing you all a magical Christmas & a very happy new year!
