A Christmas Tag...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a tag I made for several challenges.  I have never taken part in Ellen's 12 Tags with a feminine twist challenge mainly because I have never been much into making tags.  But this year I have made several tags and I'm really enjoying it so I thought I would play along.  I'm also going to post this to the current Memory Box challenge, the current Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up challenge (Memory Box) and the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (tags).  My tag is inspired by Kittie's gorgeous tag from day 2 of 12 Tags and the sketch provided on day 9.  After I die cut the tag from cardstock and patterned paper (from My Mind's Eye) I adhered the two together.  The poinsettia was made using the Memory Box Poinsettia Bloom Trio and the landscape pieces were cut using the MB Country Landscape border die.  The landscape pieces were cut from some woodgrain patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, trimmed and then layered on the tag with the top layer adhered with foam dimensionals.   The poinsettia was created using all three blooms from the die and then some Diamond Stickles added to the center.  The leaves were also cut using the same die.  I adhered the poinsettia and then used to words/phrases from the Essentials by Ellen Merry & Bright set to create my sentiment.  I added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the tops of the houses, the tree and some of the ground and then finished things off with the green ribbon and twine bow.




Thanks for stopping by today...
