Winter Wolf In The Snow

Hello everyone I hope your having a good day wherever you are in the world.
As promised here is my card I made,this one is for my mum and dad as my mum loves wolves and after all her maiden name is Wolfe lol I also think this image is perfect for men too so it will suit both my mum and my dad.
The image is from Debbi Moores Crystal Dreams CD rom and so are the papers I have used.
I have embellished the card with poinsettia and swirl dies from Marianne Designs and the tag die is a nestabilities die.The sentiment says 'Snow many ways to wish you a merry christmas' which came from a cute companions stamp set and to finish off I have added some holographic card candy.I have also added some glitter to the snow on the topper and the swirls and poinsettia has also been sparkled up too.Oops almost forgot I have also added gems to my card too.
Please forgive my bathroom shelf being in the piccy it was the only place I could take it as its so dull here.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Bearly mine challenge-Favourite things(glitter,animals,cd roms,dies)
Crafters companion-Let it snow
Crafty purple frog-For someone special(mum and Dad)
Pan pastel-Animals

A Journey Tag-Not Sure If I Like It

Hello everyone Firstly I want to apologise for not getting round all of your blogs and commenting I will be doing my very best to catch up through the week.
I would also like to say a massive welcome and hello to all my new followers I am so pleased you want to join me in my madness.
Now lets talk about this tag I made I am still unsure about it so I thought I would let you decide.
The stamps I have used were a free set from Debbi Moores new stamping inspirations to you magazine you get a 20 page free card kit inside the mag as well as a stamp sheet on the front all for £4.99 and there is also a cd one too where you get 20 page kit plus a free full cd rom too for the same price I think they really are a bargain and so far I have collected them all lol.
So back to the tag I used the stamps and stamped in vintage photo distress ink and distressed the tag and suitcases in the same colour I have edged the tag with a darker distress ink to help it stand out a bit.I aso added some ribbon behind the elements to break sown the brown a little.For the Sentiment I have triple embossed using gold and stamped into it for more added texture then finished off with some dark brown ribbon at the top.
So please give me your honest opinions and where you think I could of made it better.

I would like to enter this tag into the following challenges:

Bearly mine-one for the boys
Stamptacular-Boy oh Boy
The stamp man-Tims tag techniques
Sentimental sundays-Masculine gift tags

Thankyou so much for popping by to see me and any comments would be greatly appriciated
much Love
