WMSC #76 - 12-3-11 Round Purple Ornament Tag

Hi!  I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  My hubby is working,  and the kids are bogged down with homework so I'm left to entertain myself!  I thought I'd get my week off to a good start with a little Waltzingmouse!  The sketch this week is a tag - which is kind of coincidence since Claire is hosting a tag contest this month with big prizes.  Needless to say tags have been on my mind - who couldn't use a free set of Waltzingmouse stamps?

WMSC#76
I love all the bright colors of the holiday season, and all the sparkle and shine that makes everything so magical.  There is no limit to the colors you can use at Christmas time.  I think they all work.    I really love the combination of gold and purple - they are so rich and elegant.  I started off  my ornament by embossing the patterened egg stamp from WMS Nestie Eggs set with Zing! Metallic Purple. I topped that off with eggplant pearl paper layered with gold foil paper that I embossed.  I added a bow with a Bazill Bling! Gem button that I cut the back off and a few tags for the holly leaves in the sketch.  I mean what's better than two little tags?  Three right?  The "For You" sentiment comes from the WMS Nutcracker Sweet set.
As I mentioned, I made a few tags that I will be showing in the next few days.  I had a real dilemma deciding what tag to enter in the WMS tag contest.  Quick and simple or over the top fancy and elegant?!  I still have to decide.  The contest is one entry per person.  If you check back in the next few days you'll get to see both.

That is one spectacular tag! Fit for a queen:) I always love to see the little details you add to each of your projects. For this one, the purple embossing and the triple tiny tags are my favorite little details! Another awesome creation my friend:) Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Absolutely elegant, love the purple and gold combination. That ironworks diecut in gold is so beautiful and all the pretty ribbons and bows are gorgeous. If you have others as good as this, I can see why you are having a tough time choosing just one to enter!

Ohhh Jeanne, that's one wonderful tag! I LOVE how you used the Nestie Egg pattern to make it! Oh the things you do with the color purple! The ribbon with the fancy gold die cut and looks like real metal, and the gem is just the right embellishment to finish this beauty! I totally give my exclamation point key a workout when I visit your blog ;)!

Gorgeous tag Jeanne, you really work so well with these regal colours, and I love the clever use of the eggs stamp for the bottom of the tag, a real shimmery delight!

I saw this in your WMS Gallery, Jeanne. It is just so pretty - I can't get over how you used the pattern from Nestie Eggs..made me look at it in a whole new light! Another purple stunner, too!

Yes, very elegant!!! I'm not a purple person (that is, I don't work with it well) but, you definitely are....you're right... Definitely elegant!!

Love, love, love the purple! It's such a non-traditional color for Christmas but looks so elegant with the gold. Woooo-eeee, this is pretty!
