New Challenge #59 at Glitter n Sparkle

Hello again,
So it's Sunday again.
And I'm still up North, but the Parents
came back yesterday, 
so I'm toddling back to my house
later on today,
I can get some proper crafting 
done then, lol.
I found it hard trying to do things without 
all of my carding stuff,
making do with the few things I packed
was difficult.

Anyways for this week.....

the Theme at Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Tag Me - Make or Add a Tag

Our sponsors this week are:-

Bugaboo who are offering 
7 images from their store. 

Floppy Latte who are offering 
$6 Gift Certificate for their store .

Beary Dust, Alipeeps Art and Stitchy
at Stitchy Bear Store 
who are offering 
a $10 gift certificate for their store .

This is my project for this week: 

I used Angie digi stamp
from Beary Dust at Stitchy Bear 
(one of our sponsors).

I thought a nice 3 tier tag would be nice,
maybe to be used on a Large Christmas Present,
like a Bottle of wine.......

To start with using a Dark Navy Blue Card,
I Die-cut out 2 sizes of the X-Cut Bloom,
And 1 from Sizzix Framelit Circles #2.

Then using Forever Friends, 
Cosy Christmas Backing Paper,
I Die-cut 3 more circles to 
fit inside the Navy Blue Card
(Sizzix Framelit Circles #2).

I tried to make my Tag look as though the 
images went from ground to sky.

So for the Bottom one I coloured the
digi image in using my Promarker Pens.
I then cut her out and placed her on using
foam stickies.
Then I used Turquoise Glitter (stash)
for the collar trim of her dress,
and used 2 Tiny Blue Gems (stash)
for her earrings.

For the Second Circle I used the 
'Christmas Greetings' Sentiment Stamp
(Happy Holidays - Vintage Christmas)
and I heat embossed it on
using Watercolour Ink Pad (Versastamp)
and Tinsel Silver Embossing Powder.
Then using Silver Stickles I added some 
'Star Dots' around it.

For the Third and top Circle 
I heat embossed a Star,
(Crafts Beautiful - All B Designs)
Using the same Ink Pad and 
Silver Tinsel embossing powder.
And again added the Silver Stickle
'Star Dots'.
And on the top bump of Blue Card
I used a X-Cut 6mm Extension Punch
to make a hole.

I then added White Glitter 
Circle Peel Offs (stash),
which I thought finished them off nicely
and looked like the images were framed.
I then Used Baby Blue Brads (stash)
and connected all 3 of the Circles together.

And for the finishing touches
I added Crystal White Gems (stash)
to all the visible Blue Card Bumps.
And finally some White 8mm Ribbon,
to hang my Tag with. 
Tied with a Bow at the top.
