The tag is so pretty. Love the blue and red combination.
The embossing is great and the distressing (so easy with Core'dinations) is wonderful.
thanks for sharing a great tag.

Very nice, I'd be tempted to attach the tag to the front of a card to send as a greeting, far too nice just to use as a tag ;)

I love this embossing folder. I have seen it done as a Christmas tree during the hop. I fell in love with it. I think it would look cool as a texture as a ugly sweater card also! Great job on your use of different colors.
