12 tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie style # 11

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to my new followers too. Today Linda aka The Funkie Junkie posted her tag number 12, well I only just managed to finish my tag #11, so once again I am running behind....
If you don't know what I am talking about, check HERE for all the details. You have until December 17 to participate and there are fabulous prices to be won sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique

Like every time so far my tag is loosely based on Linda's original tag, you can see her tag #11  HERE. Like always, I don't have the same products so have had to adapt but I kept to the same colouring which I loved and the lay out and elements are pretty similar too. I created my back ground in pretty much the same way, just using different stamps, I also used Spelbinder dies in stead of Tim Holtz/Sissix ones and as I am using a smaller size tag I could not fit a lace border along the top, so I used a lace tie instead. I really love this challenge and using Linda's ideas and then adapting them has been part of the fun, thank you Linda, your work is always so inspiring!.
Here are few details still:

Well, one more tag to go, I am well chuffed as for once I think I am actually going to manage to complete this whole challenge. Thank you for visiting and I hope you will have a creative week!

Really gorgeous, Astrid! I love your foliage collection at the foot, and the swirling flourishes in the background have such movement. Wonderful take on the tag... I'm behind again at the moment, but am now home with my full stash, so I'll get there, I hope!!
Have a wonderful week,
Alison xx

I think your tag is just amazing. I love your take on it.

I am so far behind
I don't have the stash you or Linda have. Not quite sure how to adapt a few of them with what I DO have.
That is part of the fun though.

Look forward to seeing your #12

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!
