A Christmas card with a Sweet image from Sherri Baldy!

I just Loved working on this digital image from Sherri Ann Baldy, #924 found in her store here.  It's so festive and perfect for the Christmas Season.  This is one of those dream cards that from the coloring and the papers and construction, the creative juices are just flowing and it's truly a joy to produce.
With this card, I wanted to use a design I often did years ago where you slip tags into pockets for messages or sentiments.  This image is matted in red velvet and shimmery gold cardstock and then onto some Holly print design paper.  I my mind the coloring on her dress reminds me of red velvet also so hope that comes across.  The background paper on the front is actually a Christmas song-perfect to use!  I added white flower soft and white chunky Frantage for the snow.
The tags I used were some that came on a 12x12 sheet all seasonal, with and without sentiments.  I put a brushed gold eyelet at the top and used some festive fibers for the pull tags.  Like a secret message for the recipient.
On the inside liner, I used the Holly paper again and a Stamped sentiment from KKS.
There are so many Challenges out there, especially for Sherri Baldy images, and some great Christmas ones also.
