Tag #9 @ 12 Weeks of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style

Greetings folks :) 

Sailing in today to share another tag I have made for the series of 
This tag is for week #9
And again! Linda just out did herself with her tag!  It is uttlerly drop drop gorgeous! You can see Linda's tag HERE or scroll down to the bottom of the challenges for a pic. 

I loved Linda's tag but alas, my craft room just doesn't have all the cool toys like hers :( So I made do with what I have anyway :)  And I have my fingers crossed the Jolly old man in red will look over my MUST HAVE Christmas list before he goes shopping! lol

I loved the fence like embossed background, the red and white of the stars and the so country gingham ribbon, although Linda's ribbon was green & white check, it still screamed an old fashioned Nanna's kitchen to me so I opted for red and white and I loved how she incorporated the bells.

So ... This is what Mr Mojo and I whipped up! 

I really wanted to include some embossing so I opted for a crinkle inplace of the fence (and I don't have a fence / wood grain embossing folder).  The 'corrugated tin look' is also a little more suited to here in Oz as well.

A raid of my ribbon and I found this gorgeous ribbon and matching frilly trim! 
This screams Nanna's and her Apple Pie to me :$

The embellishments .... I have been doing some shopping :( 
The bells are from my stash, but all the glittery pieces are from Christmas decorations that I JUST HAD TO buy and I have cut a little from each and glued them all together.

The sentiment is a rubber stamp I grabbed from my stash and have embossed it with black and wrapped up like a scroll with some ink distressing around the edges.  I gave the corrugated base a light sanding here and there in places, and touched it lightly with Distress inks in places too.

I am planning on using this tag on a cellophane gift bag of candy cane cookies for a friend!  I think the two are going to look delicious together!

Linda also has a wonderful prize up fro grabs!

OMGoodness, I think your tag is drop dead amazing! I love the sharp contrast of the red and white and red gingham has to be one of my absolute favorites. The sentiment scroll is brilliant - LOVE that font and the way you rolled it. Putting the tag tie in the corner is a very cute approach too. You totally ROCKED Tag #9 Leesa! I hope Santa will pay attention to that crafty wish list you have going!
