WMS 'Tag You're It!' Challenge

If you haven't heard about Claire's awesome prize giveaway, you won't want to miss it. Read about it here. Mucho WMS bucks to spend on all those delicious stamps! {swoon} The challenge is to create an elegant and beautiful Christmas tag. Not so very difficult using WM stamps! lol!
Here's what I came up with...
 One of my very favorite templates from Claire's store, the rubber band box. Very easy to put together, someday I hope to get an electronic cutter to make it even easier. I chose SU's retired Wintergreen papers because they are the most beautiful patterns and colors I have ever seen! Seriously one of my favorite Christmas/Winter paper collections, and I'm glad I stocked up!
I chose to use a simple snowflake stamp on the tag because I wanted to use 3D paint to add little 'pearls' for extra dimension. Well, I wish I had used actual little sticky pearls, because no matter how hard I try I cannot get uniformly shaped/sized pearls from Liquid Pearls/Viva Decor/3D paints! BUT, it's still very pretty, and I like it.

Wish me luck because I have a WMS wishlist a mile long and I need it, ha ha!

Thanks for looking...
