On the Sixth Day of Christmas The Queen Gave To Me...

A fabulous party!!!!

I literally feel like I went WILD with today's tag!! HA!! I'm running with the Hanukkah
theme today with the blues/golds! I used the star from the Party Like A Rockstar set as the background paper. I stamped it in SU! grey dye ink and then went over the entire sheet with my sanding block and a nail file. I then traced the stars in gold paint pen.

I then stamped the Let's Party (I *think* this may be from a kit set) but there are lots of amazing party sets at shoppe so head on over and shop shop shop!!! I stamped it in gold pigment ink, heat embossed it, stamped over it again with grey ink, heat embossed it and then went over it with my glue pen and my Martha Stewart turquoise glitter. I adhered it to a slice of blue scrap, stitched the border and set it aside to dry.
Once again - I've used my Cricut to cut the tag and insert. I pulled out my Primas and created this gorgeous border. I added a fabric covered brad in the center of each Prima then used my tiny glue dots on one petal each for placement under the tag insert. I then stitched it all down using ivory colored thread in a zig zag pattern. It's heavier than the rest of my tags but the effect is AWESOME.

There were a few white spots showing so I used the smaller same colored Primas with a simple copper brad in the center to cover up any white spots.
I added gold ribbon as the hanger and again...VOILA! Tag number 6!!!!
You MUST head over to the shoppe as there are SO many exciting things going on!! New releases, new kits, new embellis!!! What are you waiting for? =) Come on over!!!
