12 Tags of Christmas with a feminine Twist - Take 3

This tag has been created for Ellen Hutson 12 tags of Christmas with a feminine twist challenge. This tag was inspired by Jean Manis's sparkly tag from day 6.  I have used a Bella tag to which I have adhered some Basic Grey paper - this is from an old 6x6 pad called wisteria (definitely a non holiday paper collection).  The tree was cut from purple cardstock using a Nellie's Multi-frame die (MFD045).  I then adhered the sequins with the multi-medium from Ranger. (I tried the double sided paper like Jean, but it was an utter failure. Mine definitely isn't the same quality as Jean used). This was popped over some handcut snowbanks.  The Merry Christmas light string is a stamp which came free on a magazine called Christmas Cheer (the stamp set not the magazine).  It was stamped with versamark and embossed with detail white powder from sparkle n sprinkle.  The strings were extended with signo white pen. I cut the stamp in half to create the two strings. (Jennifer McGuire is right they don't scream or present any indication of pain). The present is a die from Kaszazz (I don't think it is available any more). It was cut out of two colours of the Wisteria paper and layered.  The bow was cut out of tinsel paper to match the sequins.  I finished it with a triple bow of seam binding and a little bit of gold trimmed purple satin ribbon. The seam binding came from Craft Queen but I'm not sure about the other as it was only a tiny offcut. Sorry about the crappy photo - late at night and the flash picture looked awful - the sequins looked all funny colours - yuck!

Thank you for looking, cheers Linda

PS I love purple
