I also take part in the SCS Christmas Card Challenge. It basically encourages you to create a certain number of Christmas cards each month so that come November, you have a stash ready to go. Someone suggests a theme each month, but it is optional. For this card, I've used the September theme of snowflakes with some blue on the card.
I used the faux mother of pearl technique on the tag, done by pouncing a scrunched piece of cling wrap in sparkly white liquid ink and then pouncing that onto the cs. When dry, I sponged over it with various blue Distress inks - the liquid ink acts as a resist. Then cut it out with a tag die cut.
I added a dove die cut in sparkly cs. I die cut two of the main body and glued them together, but just one of the separate small wing - it gives a nice dimensional effect to the wings. The small die cut snowflakes were randomly tapped with my Versamarker and heat embossed with sparkly ep. The sentiment is attached with dotted ribbon to match the ribbon at the top.
The background is a Darice embossing folder and the cardbase is the same shimmery green cs I used for the dove's branch.
Here are the links for the two challenges:
