Funkie Junkie 12 Tags For Christmas Tag 12!!

Well by george ive done it!!!Yep can you tell im pleased with The 12 Tags for Christmas that Linda was doing over at the Funkie Junkie.Well i have completed the last one this afternoon and so chuffed!
I've taken my inspiration from Linda's colour scheme keeping it gold/cream.I distressed the tag first of with frayed burlap &antique linen,Then i stamped faintly the beautiful image from one of my La Blanche stamps.I used Tim Holtz die tag,Birdgcage and the new christmas festive greenery die,rossettes die.I embopssed the birdcage with stampin up gold embossing powder .Added some cream vintage lace ,and found these beautiful string pearls.Added to the bottom and also to the center of the rossette. Used kaiser craft pearls for the mistletoe.I then got the t/holtz ticket die and distressed using same colours as the main tag,and embossed using the gold.The stamp is from stampin up also.The pin i made some time ago from odd beads i had collected.To finish it off sprayed the tag all over with perfect pearls "Biscotti"to c reate the dazzle bling effect.

The only trouble i had was trying to take a decent photo so dark and the gold kept coming up had to stand by my french doors in the end in my craftroom to get half decent piccy.
Thats me finished until i hope Linda does it again next year,hopefully more people will get to know and join in.So what now you ask well i am all armed ready for Sir Timmie tomorrow for the start of his 12 tags for christmas so do pop by .Can't say my tags will be as good a creation as his ,but worth
Have good evening

Woohoo, congratulations, you completed the challenge with this amazing tag, and just in time to start Tim's 12! I love what you have done with the color palette - especially love how you cut the music paper with the Festive Greenery die - that is really cool! And the rosette and the lace and the pearls-oh my, can't go wrong with all those delicious embellies! Great work, Jude. I was so happy to have you on board for this challenge. Thanks so much for being so supportive and for joining in the fun! I've had a blast and definitely want to do it again next year!

Well Done Jude
You were the first to finish! This tag is glorious I love the dangly pearls and the rosette always looks great on a creation. I found inspiration from the birdcage and I was going to case Linda's Tag this week, but as usual I went with my urges and did my own thing....I have also had a great time and I hope she does it again next year too.

Hello Jude, just thought I'd pop in and let you know that I just love this tag. The gold, pearls and lace mix beautifully. I struggle to get good photographs of projects that have a a blingy/glittery/shiny finish too, especially at this time of the year - the light is sooo bad :( Elizabeth x
