Crafty Ribbons - Tag You're It!

Happy Thursday morning to you lovely peeps!
Time once again for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons.
Thanks for all your fabulous creations on our last challenge, you really are a crafty lot aren't you?
Please stop by the Crafty Ribbons Challenge blog and see if you were one of our handpicked top 3 or our Random Winner!
So, onto our new challenge.
This time the challenge is:
Once again we have a fabulous prize on offer and here it is:
Now if you haven't seen or felt these ribbons before then you are in for a real treat.  They are totally lush!
So, why not enter your tag into our challenge to be in with a chance of winning these fabby ribbons.
So here is my project for this challenge:
First off I used my Fleur De Lis rectangle nestabilitie to cut out the shape.  Then I stamped three different shades of Distress Ink onto a wet surface and then sprayed with water.  I dragged the die cut through the ink and then left it to dry.  Then I embossed it with milled lavender distress embossing powder. (I haven't missed bits when I stamped it the reindeer has some lovely flowers on it!)
Next I used my newly purchased set of Reindeer stamps from Kanban (gorgeous set, well worth buying!).  I stamped this with Versafine Black ink and then clear embossed it.  I did the same with the big and three small snowflakes at the top.
I added a small bow and ribbon to tie it to my parcel and of course I used seam binding ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.  You should see the range of colours this comes in - no.... really you should!!
Then I stamped my Dusky Concord Distress Ink pad all over (front and back) a piece of white lace and placed that across the bottom left hand corner of my tag.  The roses are all from my stash and I hand punched the shiny leaves.  That gorgeous pin is from the Funkie Junkie's Etsy Shop - if you love vintage you will love Linda's shop - believe me!
Finally that cute little ticket sentiment is from the lovely Lynne's blog Sentiments 4 You.  If you are looking for something other than sentiments then why not pay a visit to Lynne's fabulous on-line shop Crafts 4 You.
