Challenge: 12 Tags of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style - Week #10

Hi everyone, I know I'm running late on getting Tag #10 published.  So sorry for the delay but life is definitely getting ahead of me right now. Between all the moving issues and details plus several significant family obligations, I feel like I am falling behind.  I've actually had this tag done for two weeks, but never got around to photographing it.  I've been anxious to share it.  I guess I like the instant gratification of making something and seeing it up on my blog right away.  I hate to have to set things aside when they are finished.  

Before I share the details on my tag, I just want to remind you if you are playing for a chance to win one of the gift certificates to The Funkie Junkie Boutique, you must follow the rules.  Please review them here and if you have not included some of the required information, please go back and edit your posts.  Before awarding the prizes, I will be double checking on the winners' blogs to make sure they have included the necessary information in their posts.  

I started with one of my jumbo manila tags, as usual, and then embossed it with the Bricked texture fade.  Fired Brick DI was applied directly to the embossed sections.  All the edges were sponged with Vintage Photo DI.  The icicles are white card stock embossed with the icicles border from the Christmas Background and Borders texture fade set.  After embossing, I fussy cut the border out and applied Stickles Rock Candy Distress Glitter to it.  The 25 and holly leaves were cut from Kraft Core and the ivory felt flower was cut with the Distressed Pinecones die.  I cut two and wrapped one over the other to make it that large.  I glued my vintage image to chipboard and then die cut it with the Carved Ornaments die, adding a bit of burlap string and a button for embellishments.  
For those of you who like my Photoshopped vintage overlays, here's a freebie for you.

That's it for tag #10. Thank you to everyone who has joined in the fun with this challenge to date!   If I haven't been around to thank you for playing along, I apologize - I will get there, I promise.  


All of these items used on this tag can be purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Be sure to catch my moving sale going on now through November 26th!
