Why Not Both and A Winner

Hello.  Welcome.  Yesterday I made a collage background masterboard and, after stamping even more in portrait, I decided to make some tags. ATC's? Tags?  OK, both......  

Here's a quick picture I snapped on my craft mat of all the bits waiting to go together.  I cut the masterboard using my Sizzix ATC die.  The tags, candy cane, gingerbread man and santa are all elements from Mark's Finest Papers Holiday Tags set

I attached the tags using crystal brads.  The bow on the candy cane is coloured with dark green wink of stella and I added a sparkly mini pom pom to santa's hat

I like that the brads allow you to swivel the tag to expose the fun sentiments underneath.
