Blizzard in August

JustRite Friday Challenge #056 is a shaped holiday card or tag with a twist. (edit:  This is an honorable win in the challenge 056).   This can not be the traditional rectangle or square.  I decided to make a tag into a card.  The base of this is a Spellbinder Grand Labels 4.  I used two sizes and mounted my tag on this.  The tag is 3.25 in width with rounded corners.  The bottom has a Spellbinder Fleur.  Spellbinder mittens was used and distressed. A snowman from the Blizzard Bunch is the focus of the card.  Flower soft with glitter was added to the oval image.  Lace was added to the mitten for the cuff.   The sentiment again cut with a Spellbinder tag is from the Christmas mini-sentiments set.  The ribbon was distressed with Antique Linen and is a four bow. Distress ink was used on the edges of the oval, mitten, and labels four edges.
