Early Christmas morning...and what am I doing? - D

Well you have guessed it.  I have just come out of my craft room from making a birthday tag for a friend.  Oh by the way... HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL.... HAVE A GREAT DAY!

For this tag I gessoed the chipboard and then painted in pink with cream over the top and slightly crackled it. I did some light stamping of flowers and butterflies however not all that visible. 

The lace and ribbon are from my stash as were the flowers.  The butterfly is a spellbinders die and the trailing gems are from my stash..  

The tiny frame with the sentiment inside is a style stone which I covered with  picket fence crackle paint and then lightly dusted with tattered rose.  I filled the inside with glossy accents (which is not quite dry yet)  will put an updated pic of that when it has dried.  

The image I printed from Magic Moonlight and used the picket fence round the edges..  I used rock candy on the pic, flowers and butterfly.  The pearl flower I made myself out of beads from an old necklace.  

I think I have it all covered now.  the reason I am rushing is so Santa doesn't catch me up... well he wouldn't leave me anything would he.LOL!
Right here is the evidence of madness!

Anyway like I said Have a great Christmas and kick back and relax when you have the chance ... yeah right!

Hugz to you all
