Christmas tag for the Caardvarks Challenge #2

Hi, everyone!
 September has just begun! How are you today?
After submitting my tags to entry yesterday midnight, I tried to make some again (Of course, I took my sleep time!), and just finished one more tag for the Caardvarks August challenge. Wanted to make the round shaped tag like the JustRite stampers, the sponsor of this challenge, but the result was..., please see below!
I could be in time for the deadline? Or? Anyhow, it was worth trying to create three Christmas tags in two days for me. :)

 Thank you so much Caardvarks for the wonderful challenge to have the opportunity to start thinking about something for this Christmas season!

Here is my new tag.
 This image has been in my brain since I ordered the Silly Scape stamp. This kind of composition and the elements can be seen in many Christmas images over the world. But I did want to try with it and other stamps!

Stamp used:
Hero Arts: Silly Scape / K5425, Three Holiday Messages / LL956
Inkadinkado stamps (Santa Claus and reindeers
Other supplies:
Bazzill CS
Tsukineko Versa Fine / Onyx Black

Ranger Distress Ink / Stormy Sky, Wild Honey, Embossing Powder / Espresso, Liquid Pearl / Cranberry
Hero Arts Shadow Ink / Soft Pool, Soft Stone, Snowflake sequins
Stampendous / Fun Flock, Cloud 9 Design / Metallic eyelet
genuine leather, button, color pencils, Copic colorless blender

 And, thank you so much everyone for your lovely comments for my yesterday's post! There're many places in severe weathers in the world. Glad to hear from you and please take care, too!
 I have some rest from now on, and I'm going to play on the internet after the temperature comes to be cool down a little.
Work, or not work (= my computers) ???, that is the question. Until then, my friends! ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a beautiful week!
