CT TAGS ~ Champagne

The New Year is just around the corner and what better way to prepare to ring it in than with the great kit "Champagne" by Lil Mz's Brainstorms.  The kit contains 20 great papers and over 100 elements in a great palette of gold, bright red, silver and black with accents of cream, white gold and dark rose red.  The elements contain both New Year's specific ones and general party/celebratory elements so this kit can be used past the holiday and all year round for those party tags.  You can purchase this kit here.

Christmas elegance comes personified in Alehandra Vanhek's beautiful "Christmas Gift 2" tube, a beautiful brunette who is dressed in a golden velvet Santa-style gown and carrying a brightly wrapped gift.  She comes in three versions (two with hat, one without).  I have paired her with a wonderful kit by FwTags Creations, "Christmas Gold", which includes 5 papers, 5 frames and 70 elements in a palette of golds and silvers, with accents of silver-gold, green and white, perfect for dazzling up your holiday tags.  I've also used a great alpha by Designz by Sue, "Christmas Girl", which comes in two versions.  You can purchase the tube here, kit here and alpha here.
