25 Days of Christmas Tags

Good morning friends! I am excited about being part of some fun today!! I'm participating in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Chistmas Tags! Oh, the fun!! 


The Retro Sketch girls, are making tags with the current sketch, #139. So, the sketch is here,
And here is my tag!

 I used a circle stencil, and some pumice stone distress ink to get the gray background of the tag. For my next layer, I used a sheet of velum...I know its hard to see that in the photo, but the top portion of the card is a bit softer...lol!! My beautiful glittered tree is a new image from one of the new TAWS sets, called Making Holidays Bright! Glittery trees are so dreamy!! I used a bit of silver thread...some flat silver sequins with a few rhinestones on top...and then I added a smidge of red paper and the sparkle sentiment. The sentiment is from the Freebie set from TAWS this month, called Winters Butterflies.
Here's a little closer up photo......
 
So, Tracey has a fantastic list of sponsors for some great prizes!!! The sponsors include, Lawn Fawn, Reverse Confetti, Paper Smooches, Clearly Besotted, CAS-ual Fridays, Neat and Tangled...oh my!! Isn't that an awesome list!!? So, there will be lots of winners so go to Tracey's blog to get the details!! Comment along the way...and help yourself win a fun prize! Be sure to leave a comment here, as I get to put a name into the mix, and it might be yours!!
 
I am also linking up to Virginia's View Challenge for All Things Metallic!!:)

DELIGHTFUL tag Jeni!!!
My motto is "you can never have too much sparkle & shine", so I LOVE EVERYTHING about your tag, from the sparkly tree and shining metal thread to the layered sequins & rhinestones and perfect sentiment :)
THANK YOU for sharing your CREATIVE INSPIRATION - I look forward to try layering my sequins & bling too!!!
