another tiny snowflake falls

Well here I am again with tag #7 for the lovely Linda's 12 tags of Christmas...the details of the tag challenge are here along with all the details of the prizes and how to enter. You have now, until the 8th January to play along and you could win one of the generous gift certificates for the Funkie junkie Boutique, lovely Linda's boutique that is sponsoring the challenge.
 Everyone who enters and complies by the rules will also get a discount . So without further ado here is Linda's tag #7 and below is mine, inspired by the embossed background and gorgeous flower.

I created an embossed background for my tag ( I am using #10 tags from the FunkieJunkieBoutique) and then added frayed burlap distress stain and lots of yummy creamy antique linen distress paint...yep still loving them ! 
I scuffed the edges and added some frayed burlap distress stain.

Well I loved the background and flower I made but the letters are not me :( and if time had been on my side I would have re made this without the letters like this but hey ho !

So the flower, was two die cut poinsettia die cuts , inked , wet and scrunched a little...un flattened and then a gorgeous flower from some ribbon found at Linda's boutique...and removed so I just had the flower...gorgeous colour, and fitted a treat...I added some pine frond die cuts and glittered with rock candy distress glitter.

the letters were covered with antique linen distress glitter was I felt it spoiled the soft feel of the tag...wish I had left them painty!

I added some dyed seam binding to the top..

I also added a couple of additional snowflakes..

So I will leave you with one last look at the flower and will be linking up to Linda's 12 tags here and also our creative corner are having a Vintage Christmas...using neutrals x
