Pocket Gift Card Holder

Good Afternoon everyone, don't know what's up with me today but I feel absolutely shattered.  Think it will be an early night for me unless I get a second wind.

My card today is my weekly Christmas card.  The first challenge I'm entering has been set by the ladies at Bah Humbug.  This week they have asked for a card for a teenager.  I always find this age group the most difficult to buy presents for and usually end up giving them money or a voucher so I have made this pocket card which could hold either.

The backing paper has been printed directly onto both sides of white card.  It is a digi download I had saved but the site I got it from is no more I'm afraid.  The images are both from Meljen's Designs.  Frosty and Let it Snow.  You can download Frosty here.  I've coloured with Promarkers.  I've cut the mats and tag using my nesties and added ribbon from my stash.  I've added a few pearls and glamour dust to the swirls and a small blue brad to the tag.

I am also entering it into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Pearls and Swirls
Tuesday Morning Sketches - The Sketch
Top Tip Tuesday - More than one fold
Crafty Sentiments - Sparkle

I love your little tag & the ribbon with the 3 pearls & the way you have also highlighted the snowlakes with pearls. The little white highlights of the holly berries are so effecctive too. But - it is that little tag that thrills me & how you've used the blue brad to pick up the blue spots in the gift card. Hope you are feeling more rested.
