Kraftyhands October Challenge

Right I found this hard, but most of you out there will find this challenge easy!
Tag! Make a Tag challenge! Is the challenge for october at the Kraftyhands Challenge blog

Now I struggle with tags, the same as I struggle with scrapbooking, I really dont get the point, of them for some reason, ATC's are the same!

But that was the challenge so here's my Attempt!

Now I will admit, that this is a bit of a mishmash, but actually I am quite pleased with how it went together.
Kraft Card, for tag base,
Green ribbon from Fantastic ribbons Christmas collection,
Merry Christmas Dies from Rob Adams
Nordic Santa paper stack from Kraftyhands,
and a sheet of printed decoupage from Santa's Little Helpers CD, which I printed out on the run up to Last Christmas!
Spellbinders Holly Accents dies.
Gold Mirri card
Gold paint pen,
Gems and pearls

This is quite large, nearly A5 in size, so I cut the top of the tag in a decorative die by Go Kreate, sometimes they have lucky dip bags, and you get an assortment of dies, so I dont know what its called.
then I cut a piece from one of the Nordic paper stack, for the main layer of the tag, and wrapped it with the green and gold ribbon, I have a lot of this ribbon, but its a lovely double sided wide ribbon, so though I have 2 very large rolls, I do use it sparingly as its very heavy.
I used a sheet of the 6x6 paper stack, to fold into the tree on the bottom left.
next was to cut the Holly Accent and corner dies in the green paper from the paper stack, and gold mirri, overlaying the green offset, to create the gold edge.
The decoupaged Elf had been printed last year on glossy decoupage paper, so I just had to cut it and use pinflair for dimension, before mounting it in the centre of the tag,
The Merry Christmas was cut from gold glitter card by Papermania.
then I just ran round the edge with the gold paint pen, and threaded the ribbon through. Final touch was the gems and pearls for a bit of sparkle, as there no additional glitter used.

So, If I can do a Tag, then I dont see why you cant! Go on have a go, and link to the challenge at Kraftyhands
