Sweet Stamps- Tags

We are making Christmas Tags for the Sweet Stamps challenge this week.

 I was playing with Color Bursts again, and decided to emboss a Christmas Tree on on of the green panels in Globecraft-Piccolo 24 K Gold Embossing Powder- so pretty IRL!  I fussy cut the tree and went to work making a background for it.
 I embossed the swirls on the background with Fine Detail clear EP. I used distress inks Festive Berries and Tea Die, added a touch of Rust then added Wild Honey. I used 2 of the new 3 x 6  stencils at Sweet Stamps- Backsplash and Checker Flowers.
  I used 2 ribbons at the top of the tag- organza and seam binding.

We hope you will join us!

Challenge(s):
ABC Christmas Challenge- N for Not a Card

Back in town and catching up- I will be catching up on blogs in the next week.  Thanks for your patience!  DC was a blast.

Thanks for stopping by!
