Believe in the MAGIC of Christmas!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Good Morning Everyone!
I hope your having a good week! Isn't it going fast? I have been running around like a crazy women (Grandma) this week trying to get ready for Ms Ayra's birthday party on Saturday. She will be 2 on Monday 11/11~crazy how time flies. It seems like she was just born!

It's my day to post at My Craft Spot and I have a fun project to share with you today.  I used some of My Craft Spot's new Stamps and Dies from the Winter Stamp Release on my
Christmas tag:)
I hope you like it!
I started off with a tag that I cut with papers from MME Lost & Found Christmas collection. I added a pretty paper doily that was in my stash and cut a label from pattern paper from this stack. The label is cut at 3 1/2 from the Elegant Edges cartridge and inked around the edges with TH victorian velvet and adhered it down in place. 
I won this adorable Prima Mixed Media Doll Stamp and so happy I finally got a chance to use it! Thanks so much Diane from Nellies Nest~I absolutely adore this stamp and will be making more tags, for sure!!
I stamped the doll 4 times to piece the hair, clothing and shoes in fun pattern paper. I then inked the edges with TH victorian velvet, added foam adhesive tape to her and layered her on the tag. 
The snowflake is from My Craft Spot's Snowflake Border Metal Die. I added some rhinestones to it for a little sparkle. What a fantastic metal fun to use on your Christmas projects! I just love it!
I stamped the sentiment on a 1 1/2" square cut from the George cartridge with the Joy Filled Christmas stamp set, the holly with the Christmas Ornate Labels stamp set and then adhered it down hanging slightly over the edge of the tag. 
I cut a small panel along the bottom and punched a lacy border piece using a EK Success border punch. The banner is from from My Craft Spot's Ribbon Banners Straight Metals Die and the sentiment is stamped with Christmas Banners Sentiment stamp set.
I finished by adding a cranberry ribbon bow, a natural jute string bow and button from my stash. I also added a little tulle. 
So, what do you think? How fun to add this to a package at Christmas time or a larger gift bag?
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge # 185 Anything Goes
2.) Love Rubberstamps Challenge #77 Anything Goes
3.) Craftin Desert Diva Linky Party Anything Goes
4.) Everyday is an Occasion Sunday {FUN}day Linky Party
Thanks so much for stopping!
