Holly Berry Rosette Tag Card - Sketch Frenzy Friday

It's amazing how quickly the week rolls by.  Here it's Friday already and it seemed it was just Friday yesterday.
Halloween is done and gone - thankfully no snow here, but some parts of the country got a dumping of snow.  Christmas is now on everyone's mind - including mine.
For today's card sample for the Sketch Frenzy Friday mini blog hop, I made a rosette tag card i.e. a tag within a card.  You'll see what I mean in just a second.

Today's sketch is by Tina Munske

Stamp: Sentiment  from Come to Bethlehem, Jolly Holiday bits
Ink: Basic black, Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil delight marker
Papers: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Series Paper, Crumb Cake, Silver Glimmer Paper, Whisper White
Accessories: Two Tag die, Simply Scoring tool, Northern Frost decorative strip, Modern word label punch, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, Stocking Builder Punch, White Baker's twine

The tag and the layer for the card front were made first.
A slit was made using an exacto knife (the punch wouldn't reach) the width of the tag.
The card front layer was then attached to the base and the tag inserted.

Looking at the card one would never know the treasure it hides

Now let's see what you do with this sketch.  Don't forget to upload it to the Sketch Frenzy home page here
