Paperplay - Create a gift tag for the holidays!

Woohoo... it's Thursday so it's challenge time on Paperplay.  The challenge this week is set by "moi" and it is to create a Holiday/Christmas/Gift Tag for the Holiday Season.

I was inspired by this wonderful creation by Belinda Chang Langner.  I just ADORED what Belinda created so I used the idea and dies and set to work.  Belinda stuffed hers as a gift card holder/ornament but I just wanted mine to be a straight tag with no openings.

So, I used my Spellbinders Vintage Ornament dies to cut the cerise pink felt and then stamped the Waltzing mouse Vintage ornament stamp on some pink cardstock and used clear embossing powder.  Then I cut around the stamped/embossed image and placed it on top of the felt.  I very carefully stitched it through the cardstock and felt to create two layers/some texture. I then added a sentiment again from Waltzing mouse and two cerise mini bells I picked up on Saturday by Paperchase.  Added sheer ribbon and hey presto ... cute bright pink cheery tag!
Hope you get a chance to play along this week.  Full details are on the Paperplay blog here.

Entering these into
- Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Christmas but no red or green! (think these qualify!!)
- Papertake Weekly Challenge - red or green must not be seen!
- Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Christmas
- Dutch Dare Card Challenges -  Christmas themed tag, card or ornament.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are staying warm where ever you are.
