Happy Little Stampers - November Christmas Challenge

And here goes with another project into my Christmas stash!  This month at the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge we'd like to see anything Christmas, but the optional twist is a tag.

As I've said on many occasions I love how the smaller scale of a tag seems to give me the freedom to add more of everything and totally abandon my preferred CAS style.

And boy did I have fun putting this little tag together.  I started by die cutting the white tag and cutting a smaller red tag to fit inside. The two layers were stitched together on my little purple - had to be purple didn't it - sewing machine.

I then stamped and coloured and hand cut the wreath, added some shiny red gems and popped it on top of a tartan banner. A wooden deer and a couple of sticker embellishments and I called a halt and made myself stop!

Stamps: Magazine freebie
Ink: SU, baked brown sugar
Embellishments: Mei Flower, red gems; wooden deer & stickers from my stash
