Tag #11 @ 12 Weeks of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style

Hello :)

Back again as promised :)
And this time with tag # 11 for 
OMG! Linda's tag this week was just .... WOW! 
And I just fell in love with her script background with the flourishes and the gorgeous chain like textured piece she used behind the sentiment.  You can see Linda's tag HERE or scroll to the bottom of this post.

 I have been itching to find a reason to use the chain mesh ribbon I brought weeks ago and this called for the time to break it out of it's packet.  I created the background with a mix of a script stamp and a flourish from Bella's Clear stamps. Then, it was time to embellish!

 The vintage picture I acquired through pintrest, I wanted really vintage so I printed it out on Kraft, added some brown glitter to the edges, a clear coat of embossing powder and layered on the chain mesh ribbon.

 The rose is handmade with a gold pearl center that has been layered on top of bow and then on top of an pulled apart prima flower.  Along the bottom of the tag I added some crochet lace and the gold leaves and berries all came from a Christmas decoration I have pulled apart.

I just LOVE this tag! 
I think it would have to come in the top 3 of my favorites I have made for this series!
