12 Tags of Christmas 2014 (Tag 1)

It is that time of year again!!!   The Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2104.



I really enjoyed playing along last year but did not quite finish!   LOL… I always poop out around day 8.   Lets see where I end this time!


Day 1 tag

Here is Julie Ebersole’s tag.   I took the inspiration of the wreath, the colors and the touch of gold…..well…. a lot of touch of gold


After I painted the tag, I felt the while wreath was just a little too white against the background.   Looking back at Julies, she make the colors all the way to the top (ish).    So I decided to add gold circles, simply because gold circles are just awesome.  Everyone agree now by nodding your head.

But still the wreath looked too white.  So I decided to dip the bottom half into the gold.  The decided to keep the pink colors going in the opposite direction.   Darker pink nearer the gold, lightest color on the top.   For the ribbon I decided to color my own seam binding to match the colors and then added some funky gold ribbon I found at Michaels.   I am not a huge fan of lots of ribbon but since this challenge was WITH A FEMININE TWIST, I thought, go ahead, pink it out with pink and gold ribbon.    You could make the ribbon longer and tie it around a bottle of wine.   Make it a nice hostess gift for the holidays!!!

Sort of Elle Woods from Legally Blonde!!!!  All that Pink and Gold!!!!

 I hope you enjoyed my tag….see you tomorrow!!!!!
