Blossom Tag

It's Friday evening! Are the presents wrapped, cookies baked, all preparations completed?  Good for you.  If not, you probably need a little break. Come sit down for a minute.
A little break here from all of the Christmas art and cards that are everywhere right now.  I am  showing a large tag using one of the new releases by Red Rubber Designs.  The stamp set I used is Blossoms and Blessings. This set includes 8 stamps including 3 blossoms, 2 leaves, and 3 sentiments.

The papers and small tags that I used are from the Amberly Grace Patterned Cardstock Collection and the Pemberly Bay Matchbook Kit.

The large blossom has been stamped, embossed and fussy cut. For the center of the blossom I used copper colored micro beads.

The stem for the bud as well as the embellishments by the leaves is copper wire from an old light fixture. A small strip of rusty wire screen finishes off the corner.

I am entering this in the Try It On Tuesday "lucky dip"challenge.  I used die cuts, ribbon, distressing, and a stamped image.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful holiday.
Merry Christmas!

Oh Sarah, this is lovely! The colours are just perfect (well, I would think that - brown&blue is my favourite!)... and I love the movement you've created with your layers and layout, and the texture of those paper edges. Gorgeous!
Have a wonderful Christmas!
