Christmas tag !

I can't believe it's less than 2 weeks to go to the big day, where has the time gone ! I'm nearly there with everything, just the last bit of wrapping to do !

So, today is the next challenge over at The Frilly and Funkie challenge and this time it's the turn of the lovely Terry to set the challenge and here's what Terry has to say:

In the Holiday spirit, show us a tag or tags celebrating Christmas or Winter. 

I decided to make a bottle tag for this challenge. I've got a couple of Christmas gifts in the bottle form so thought it would be great to do a tag for them. I've used quite thick white card stock and punched a circle in one end and rounded the corners of with a corner punch. I've used Bundled Sage and Forest Moss DI and stamped using Olive Archival ink. The stamp sets I've used are Artistic Outpost Midwinter and Sleigh Ride.

The text is from an Indigo Blu set and I've cut it out using a Nestability. The holly and fern are cut from green cardstock using the Tim Holtz Festive Greenery. I've then used my melting pot and dipped the leaves into the UTEE. The berries are made from little red beads and the croecheted lace is from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and the gold ribbon from my stash.

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and make sure you hop over to the main blog to check out the fabulou work by the rest of the DT.
