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

Here is the last of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie style.  For my last tag, I chose to use Antique Linen and gold tones, stamping the background with the Wendy Vecchi Nature's Art gingham stamp that I love so much.  The birdcage was cut from chipboard, dry embossed for texture and then heat embossed with gold EP.  I used my new Tim Holtz holly leaf die to cut 3 holly leavess.  I gold embossed music on them and then sponged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress inks.  Snowflakes and glitter added another dimension and a champagne bow and stick pin from my Etsy boutique rounded out the embellishments. 

Thank you so much to all who have joined in this challenge.  I have been so inspired by all the fabulous artwork entered into the challenges.  We will have a random drawing on December 16th and the winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to my Etsy shop.  You must have entered all 12 challenges in order to win.  You have until midnight ET on December 15th to complete the challenges.  There is still time so what are you waiting for.  The links for all the challenges are on my sidebar and the rules are found in the first post.

Oh Gosh I have been waiting patiently with great anticipation to see this last Tag Linda, and it is a beauty. Like Judy I have also enjoyed every minute I have spent on this Challenge,so thank you for that, now I must think about my last creation, there are so many elements to inspire me on this Tag. But, I must limit myself otherwise my mind becomes chaotic with ideas and everything is a big blur!!!!

Linda: I enjoyed viewing and reading how you created the tags. Wowsers, you amaze me with your creativity. Tim Holtz watchout! LOL!
I don't know if I will get all twelve made, but was inspired by your Day 12 tag and uploaded one I created last night.
Good luck to the future winner of your challenge.
