Mitten Tag for Jess

Hi Blog Friends, Not feeling too hot, battling a cold and a stiff neck. It put a damper on my Thanksgiving weekend but I'll got thru it. I missed the Color Throwdown Challenge from last week. This mitten shaped tag was made for that challenge. Oh well, onward and upward!
Beside the color challenge, I was inspired by 2 things. One was Robin's Creative Cottage mitten tag ( check hers out, it's gorgeous!) and the other was PTI Make it Monday video on YouTube ( layered vellum).

I combined the 2 ideas to make my tag. I put it on my Daughter's birthday present last week. She's partial to mittens and I always think of her when I see one! I put a loop of twine on the back so she can hang it on her tree, if she wants.
Like Robin's, I used Joys of the Season Cricut Cart for the mitten but then cut it again with PTI vellum to layer over some snowflake confetti. Then just layered on some goodies, seam binding, holly leaves with stickles, lace, bell, PTI Tag, twine and a Maya Road star pin. The paper, MME, is a bright turq. but the vellum tones it down quite a bit.

Aren't the layers yummy? I'm entering this in a few current challenges.
