Holiday Home Tag.....

Hello Everyone: I love, love being able to combine challenges with one single card, it's fun, effective and helps me really reach inside my creative mind to come up with something pretty that adheres to the rules of the challenges. I made this card for the Mojo Monday 428 sketch challenge and the Tag You're It! challenge. Here is my card.
This card was made with the beautiful but retired SU set "Holiday Home". The little house is stamped onto Canson water color paper and colored with the aqua painter and SU Mossy Meadow ink pad and SU markers in Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight. I paper snipped it and placed it on a piece of Ninah Solar White card stock, I stamped the Snowman and Santa's sleigh with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I punched the tag with SU Scalloped Tag Topper. The DSP is retired from SU, the ribbon is from my never ending stash.
I don't know where this punch with the word "hi" is from, it's very, very old and the label is gone, I apologize I don't have the information on it.  I sponged the sky with a bit of Tim Holtz Broken China ink, masking the moon, I should have done it with a darker blue, this is supposed to be a night sky.
Here is a picture of the inside of this card.
Here is the banners that inspired this card.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
