Merry Little Christmas - August

Hello there!  It's our very first challenge over on the brand new Merry Little Christmas challenge blog.  Our theme is always Anything Goes Christmas.  Each challenge begins on the 1st of the month and runs the whole month.

I've made a tag out of cardboard.  I torn away most of the edges to expose the corrugated insides.  I then painted the edges.  I used a bunch of paper scraps I had left from making some cards to create the background.  Then I added the stamped and paper pieced image.  A few die cuts were thrown in.  And lastly the Ice Stickles.  Love me some Stickles.
