Candy Canes Christmas Tag Card #3

I'm having such great fun turning these tags into Christmas cards!  It is really putting me in a festive mood.  I just love the candy canes on my Tag card #3.

I added an an Old Olive Open Scallop punched border to the design running down the center of my tag to give it a bit more color.  I also changed the scalloped circle to a green paper with a bit of red as I thought this would also add more color.  I stamped my Crumb Cake (tan) Decorative Label with SU's Crumb Cake ink and the Flowering Flouishes stamp to give the plain cardstock some additional interest.  I added to and changed the tag ribbons, added some candy dots and a Cherry Cobbler fishtail mat behind the sentiment.  Following is a picture of Tag card #3 with a picture of Heidi's original tag.  By comparing the two you can see how card #3 evolved.
