Card Concept Challenge - Make a Tag

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving here at the Marsh household. I have a big dinner planned for tomorrow and lots of family coming to enjoy it. 
It's time for another Card Concept Challenge. This time around its all about a snowman and we are asking you to make a tag. 
Here is an inspiration photo to help in creating your tag.
And, for this challenge the team is also part of Tracey McNeely's 25 days of Christmas tags. Thank you for having us Tracey!  There are prizes to be won with this challenge so make sure you leave a comment here and on the other designers blogs.
When I looked at the inspiration photo I saw the snowman (of course) and his big arms reminded me of birch tress. So that's the direction I took.
My tag started with teal cardstock and I die cut some Memory Box birch trees.  Added a few red birds to the trees for a little contrast and interest.
I die cut some snow banks with the PaperTrey Ink "in the meadow" die set and added chunky glitter. My cute little snowman image is a stamp from Your Next Stamp. I colored him with Copic Markers and fussy cut.
To complete the tag I die cut the "merry" word and added some red ribbon and silver cording.  The sentiment and die are from Paper Trey Ink - "holiday words" collection.
Well that's it for me for today. So don't forget to leave a comment here because I will be picking one comment for another chance to win the fabulous prizes that Tracey is offering.
Here is a link to Tracey's blog post  where she explains how you can win one of the prizes she is offering. Lots of chances to win so don't pass this up.
Happy Thanksgiving!!
