Christmas Tag

Hi there!

I've been getting messy and glittery and I'd like to share it with you...

a handmade poinsettia

metallic silver paint
distressed wooden buttons

fine red and chunky green glitter

just love these wooden buttons

lots of dimension

It's quite different for me - there is no ribbon for a start!

You see, I found a new challenge blog called Nicely Done Designs - you must use everything that is in their box.  This time it is corrugated card, twine, buttons, hand made flowers.  I thought I'd try to make a flower brooch out of corrugated card but it evolved in to a tag.

I'd also like to enter in to these challenges/linky parties:
Cupcake Craft - Christmas
Crazy Challenge - Christmas
Pile it on - Embellishments (buttons)
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Crafting By Design - mixed media (acrylic paint, glossy medium)
Quirky Crafts - Christmas Tag

Thanks for stopping by
