festive love ..

here is my tag , inspired by Tim's 12 tags of 2011, tag no 12..
I mean make a tag inspired by Tim's tags.. rude not to..
so here is mine:
I made the background in similar fashion to Tim's tag
adding some creative expressions mica flakes
and stamped flourishes
instead of the letters I used ideology letters coloured silver
a heart, cut from grunge paper
inked and then wire and a
chit chat sticker added
along with a wooden heart covered in mica flakes
finally a porcelain style flower, with some mica flakes sprinkled  in
sorry about poor photo
my camera is playing up!!
added to the centre of a tissue wrap poinsettia
thanks to Hels for inspiring me to get my melt pot out!!
I am entering this for the following competitions:

have a fun and inky day
will be back later to announce the winner of my blog candy!
