Freshly Made Sketch #4 - FMS4

Two sketches in two days...unheard of for me!  However, I came across this new blog and I love their sketches.  See this week's sketch below.  I'm getting in at the last minute, but it's a great sketch to keep on hand for future use.

I just got the "Northern Frost" Decorative Strip Die which cuts beautiful snowflakes.  I had also tried to make a card using the Dasher stamp on a tag last week but couldn't quite make it work.  So, when I saw this sketch, I knew I had to give it a try with Dasher and the snowflakes. 

You can't tell because the bow is in the way, but the top of the tag is scalloped.  I turned the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch upside down and put one end of the paper through so a few scallops would punch across the top.  Dasher is stamped with Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  If you click on the picture, you can see the sparkle a little better.

Here's everything I used:
