Creative craft DT card- tag your it!

Morning all , boy how time passes by and it will soon be full swing for the festive season, and then onto a new year though I'm not totally sure where this one has dissappeared to, time just seems to vanish in fast forward mode, I think father time should definitely stop and smell the roses then we could all breath and enjoy things a bit more instead of living in one big rush.

Enough waffle I hear you shout get on with it woman, ok ok.

Over at creative craft challenges this time we have a fab challenge for you all, Tag it! Now that could be a tag on a card as an embellishment, a tag shaped card or even a gift tag on it's own or on a hand crafted gift, or any other tag interpretation you can think of. Plenty of scope so please come along and join in the fun, you might be our lucky random winner as we have another fab sponsor prize 2 stamps from Little Claires and they are real cuties too, for someone and it could be you!Do you think anyone will notice on the DT if I join in?

My project is a card for Christmas. My step bro and S-i-L  well sil really likes her aires and graces and often I think feels she is better than the rest of us, not that she is as I know where she grew up etc but she is all about appearances and well we all have to be different. I thought I'd try and send them a card thatwould fit with her aloof self status and try an do an elegant card for them. Please don't get me wrong I think she is a lovely person just sometimes forgets that her extended family aren't bothered about the image she wants to portray to the outside world and once in a while she should let herself be herself, especially with family.

I used a green pearlised base card and added some festive flowers , berries and green ribbon loops. I added glitter to the flowers for added sparkle but tried to keep it subtle. The Tag I made from gold mirri card and added a preprinted foil sentiment then more green ribbon. Hopefully less is more.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-
Crafty purple frog- flowers
CRAFT-use vellum
ABC christmas challenge-x for xmas with flowers
The crafty pad-red and green
Sundays with Crissy-red,green and gold
