Red and Purple Ornament Tag


This time of year I'm always looking for ways to make things a little extra special - could be a place card for the dinner table, a decoration to display, or a tag to make a gift super special.  Kelly, our Waltzingmouse Gingham Girl teases me that red and purple are my signature colors so rather than fight it I thought I would embrace it on this tag .

I layered up foil die cuts and stamped die cuts and topped it off with a two color bow with bitty jingle bells.  It was fun and easy to make - just be sure to have lots of foam pop dots on hand :)  I'm entering this one at DYSU #102 Challenge Blog whose current challenge is Christmas.  I'm sad to say the DYSU Challenge Blog will be closing down at the end of this year - so now is your last chance to collect that winner badge!  I had to give it just one more go!

Thanks for stopping by for a look - I hope you have a beautiful day!
Jeanne

Like you don't have enough winner badges? You should be a shoo-in for this one, love your round card with the 1,2,3,4,5...layers not even counting that cute tag, bow and bells. Love all the red and purple and the great way you rotate the bow colors. Beautiful tag Jeanne. You deserve that badge!!!

Oooh! Purple and red (with a touch of gold) are definitely your signature colors! Why fight it? LOL!

This project is lovely as usual, my dear! I'd love to see variations of these all over a tree! That would be spectacular! And I love the jingle bell/bell! So cute!
