I did it!! Tag # 12 Funkie Junkie style

Hello everyone and a specially warm welcome to all of my new followers.
Well I am very proud of myself as I actually managed to finish all of the 12 tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie style and I have one week to spare....

If you don't know what this is all about, you can check out all the details HERE, and if you still wanted to join in, well, there is one week left because this challenge closes on the 17th of December. It has been a lot of fun and I have met some lovely people through this challenge too and that has been great.

Now for the details of tag number 12, like usual I have taken a lot of inspiration from Linda aka the Funkie Junkie's original tag which you can see here
Like Linda I gold embossed my background and coloured my tag red, though somewhat darker than Linda's. I then added some similar elements, like an ornament with snowflakes, (though mine, being a Spellbinders one has a bit different shape) there is some holly on my tag  like on Linda's but mine was created with a little JustRite stamp and instead of a heat embossed background panel, I ran mine through an embossing folder and then went over it with my all time favourite product at the moments, Treasure Gold in the colour White Fire. I added a little stamped heart to my ornament for some more interest and embellished with a rose rather than a poinsettia.

I did not have a Happy Holiday stamp which I liked so my message says Merry  Christmas, but I did not really need to tell you that as it is quite obvious lol....
Well that's it, 12 tags complete. This wonderful challenge is being sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and one lucky winner, who has completed all 12 tags and fulfilled all the other criteria, stands to win a fabulous price with two further runners up (is that a word?), how generous is that?!
Hope you like my tag, thank you for visiting and hopefully see you all soon again.

Well done on completing all 12 tags Astrid. This last one is beautiful. I've really fallen in love with that Spellbinders ornament die after seeing you use it a few times. Love the background embossing and I'm waiting for a 'happy mail' parcel with the gorgeous Treasure Gold colour included ;-)

Hugs

Yay... congratulations, and what a finale - this is so gorgeously rich and beautiful. The gilded background flourishes are lovely, and that bauble is absolutely stunning... hurrah for Treasure Gold!

I'm only in it for the pride of course, having not gone festive with mine - but I'm determined to get done... only a week left you say? Hmm...

Love the vintagey feel to this one Astrid and although I hadn't heard of Treasure Gold before, think I'm going to have to investigate that further!

Dear Astrid,
another gorgeous tag.
The gold embossed red background, is stunning, and all the other embossed pieces looks wonderful with a little gold touch, too. A very beautiful tag, in real christmas colours.

Oh Astrid, you have outdone yourself with this finale! It is glorious - I love not only the heat embossed base but the dry embossed top panel is lovely too. Your ornament is so beautiful and that heart is such a perfect embellishment. It has been wonderful having you play along with us this year for the 12 tags of Christmas challenge. Best of luck in the drawings and a Merry Christmas to you!

Hugs,
Linda

Auch das 12. Tag ist hervorragend geworden und mit den embossten und geprägten Hintergründen sowie der gestanzten und noch zusätzlich geprägten Weihnachtskugel und der schönen Dekoration ganz wunderbar anzusehen.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
