12 Tags -Funkie Junkie Style #1

Well Hello.......Long time no post.
As I was checking up on you all this week, I noticed Linda ( The Funkie Junkie) had started her 12 Days of Christmas Tags again this year, I missed some years, but as I am on a little break I thought I would join in. Posting up once a week will not impinge too much into the wedding makes and to be honest I need a change!!!!
This is my interpretation of Linda's Tag (you can see hers at the bottom of this post. )

 I am three weeks behind but it is not a problem, I can catch up.
On her Tag she has positioned a poinsettia which hit me in the eye immediately, so of course I am going to make that flower, her background is also engaging, but I did not want to go down the path of embossing, so I used G45 Christmas paper and concentrated on the shape of the poinsettia as my main focus.
I have not taken step by steps Pics, only an explanation; it is very simple to make.
Step One:
Cutting the three shapes to make up the Bg.
#1-Black CS.
#2- Gold Glitter on White Cardstock.
#3-G45 paper.

Step Two:
Die cut the petals to make up the flower.

Step Three
Embellish, I used a holly diecut, and some brads, I also glittered up the centre circle.

 If you wish to play along you can find all the info on her Blog, she also sponsors through 
The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  
 Catch up with you soon with Tag #2.

Welcome, Sue, to the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style. I'm delighted to have you come out of "retirement" to play along with my little challenge this year. Your first tag is delightful. Beautiful patented paper for your poinsettia. Great dimension too...love the Christmas greens and the lovely red plaid in the background. Can't wait to see you make for next week.

Onion!!!! I'm smiling HUGE :D
Who knew that 12 tags would reel you back in...I'm so happy. Would you look at your sensational tag. I love the shimmers and shiny glow of the holly and that poinsettia created with scripted DP looks incredible. The shape is gorgeous and I can't wait to see the rest. So happy to have you in and out of bloggyland.
