Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas-Tag 7

I'm back again today with another "Tag" for the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge!  Linda's tag is above and here's how I was inspired:

So, when I saw Linda's gorgeous tag my first thought was mmm.. plaid and my second thought was .. oh no... blue!  So as you can see I didn't take my inspiration so much from the colors this time, although that white poinsettia and Holly leaves... and then also, the fancy glittery frame and sentiment.

I had some already cut and gold splattered poinsettia leaves in my box of leftovers so it was easy to put this one together quickly.  A snowflake painted gold and a gold glittery gem make up my flower center to mimic others on this piece.  And I just happened to have that Tim Holtz die for the "greenery" so cut one out in white glitter (I actually cut two so I could add these leaves to the other similar flower on this piece... you'll see that again.. someday.

I had a frame similar to the one in the inspiration tag, however, it would not have fit inside my cubby and I didn't want it to be outside... but I did have this pretty one that I believe was a freebie from Our Daily Bread when I ordered from there once.  And I had this pretty Merry Christmas sentiment already in my box of leftovers and it ended up being perfect when cut using the inside of the frame die.

I added that other cardinal I was talking about because that corner needed a little something small and it was perfect!

And here's a little bit wider angle so you can see this one sits next to my "Tag" #1.

On to the next!  Be sure to visit the shop over at The Funkie Junkie!  You'll find all kinds of goodness there!
