Mixed Media Inspired

Howdy Crafters - I am always in awe when looking at the mixed media art at Simon's Says on Monday's. Well, today I got inspired for the distress challenge. My normal distressing is around the edge - which I did on this tag - but there is much more going on here and it is a Christmas tag.   Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week ~ Gail~
