my tag no 8 for the funkie junkies 12 tags of christmas 2012

hey there and thanks to everyone who has taken the time to stop by
 and be part of my creative journey..
well here I am with another tag ..no 8. for the funkie junkies twelve tags of Christmas 2012.
.details here. Linda's wonderful tag no 8 is here
and there are prizes for some lucky ones that make all 12,
 generously sponsored by Linda's fab shop the funkiejunkieboutique
so here is mine :
( mine is very different this time)
my inspiration came from Santa and the wonderful flower with bingo token centre..
I started by stamping this fab little star in clear and clear embossing then
inking tag in brown DI, and spritz and flick ..
and roughening edge with tonic tool and inking.
this fab Santa component stamp is stamped on sticky back canvas.
lightly inked around the edges
I added kraft snowflakes with wooden star centres.
got a bit of a thing about these stars!!!
I added crochet lace to continue the neutral and natural colours and feel..
finally a flower cut as Linda's..cut from unbleached calico
and the centre a rusted bingo piece..
could I find no 25.....NO!!!!
not at all like Linda's but definitely inspired by many elements of her tag..
just couldn't do red sorry!!!!
p.s guess what?.. I did it!!! I made a tag with NO rock candy loose glitter!!
have shocked myself!!
I am entering this for the following competitions:
have a fun and inky day!!
p.s I have some candy here
