Tag #8

Hello Everyone,
This is #8 Tag that I am posting up for the Funkie Junkie style 12 Tags of Christmas challenge.

I did make a flower!

But I was not able to use it anywhere on this Tag, my method of creating is very precarious 
to say the least.
I never know what the finished Card/Tag is going to look like, there are no preconceived images in my mind. I sit down and I create, this is what I love, I may have a colour/image/sketch/paper that I pick up and I just go where it takes me. 
It works most of the time...
My problem is I don't always know when to quit!
So to be inspired and then follow through can only be good for me.
I am enjoying this Challenge.

I used a diecut frame as Linda had a gorgeous embellishment on hers at the bottom.
I wanted a vintage look, so I inked up the frame with walnut stain and added some Gold.
My FC image is Inkadinkado. I stamped image twice, and fussy cut the hat, bobble and trim to create dimension.
Die Cut a circle and and some ovals, and layered it up.
Finished off with some Bling.

This is the result.....
It is the weekend already, so I hope you all have a good one and keep safe.

I am so thankful you have visited me today.

Another fabulous tag, Sue. The colors are wonderful and what a great vintage feel to it. Terrific layers and dimension too. And your handmade flower is just over-the-top amazing. I really love the color, the brown edges and the glitter. It might not have been used this time, but one of these times it's going to be the PERFECT embellishment!

Thanks for leading the charge on this week's tag submissions!

What the tag-o-liciousness! How can so much stuff fit on such a small scale and look so freakin' amazing?? Oh that's right, you made it and it always looks like a masterpiece.
You picked wonderful aspects from Linda's tag to accentuate on and wow...did you accomplish this challenge!
