Tag 1 @ 12 Weeks of Christmas Tags - Funkie Junkie Style

Marvelous Monday all!

I thought I would start the week off with another tag to try and catch up on

 Seeing as I have not even done the tag from week 1 yet! 
 I thought it was about time I got to it and crossed off my list. 
This one really stumped me! (I had 2 attempts).

I adore the stars on Linda's tag but I don't have a star diecut :( I tried cutting some out, and I just was not happy with them!  So I went the next best thing and decided to stamp mine!  I also love the sparkle she has going on, so this tag called for me to break out the glitter and the Christmassy faint background was another element I was wanting to achieve!

 My tag on the left here .....            Funkie Junkie tag over here on the right.

 I stamped my stars and then gold glittered them up!   I was trying for an effect of the stars above the village on the paper.

I have kept this tag reasonable 'clean' a change for me :)  I adore this vintage print image and with the touch of the glittered stars I didn't want to take away from those two elements of focus.  I had a little piece of star ribbon left over from last Christmas in my stash, just enough for the bow and to add some Christmas cheer color into it all, used some red tinsel fiber ribbon for the tag tie.

I've already told you all about the luscious prize on offer from
So you can not blame a girl for just having to play along in this challenge!

For a chance to get some Funkie Junkie goodness goodies
you have to play along in all 12 of the tags!

I am fast catching up, but still a few more to go before I am there!
So I am off to get crafty again and see if I have 2 tags in me today :)
Thanks for dropping in to see me :)

Oh my, that is one fabulous vintage Christmas image and it totally MAKES this tag. The sparkly stars are great too, but I'm really loving the colors and that Santa stamp! This is a simple tag with a great amount of WOW factor! The bow with the gold stars is the perfect finisher too. Sensational entry in to Week #1. So thrilled to have you aboard for this challenge.
