Jolly and bright!

Hello all!

It's the turn of the Pink DT over at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme this week was chosen by Sheena  - "Jolly & Bright".  I had seen these great tags on Pinterest from this blog

 

and wanted to do something very similar. I decided to make greetings cards instead so I cut some tag shaped cards using my Cameo.  I tore a strip of card to cover the base of the card and then stamped and heat embossed the Christmas images.  I then inked over the images with Distress Inks, sponging and blending a couple of colours on each one, following that with some background stamping of script and musical scores.  To finish off, I removed the torn cardstock and stamped a seasonal greeting and knotted some ribbon at the top of each.  Quick and easy and jolly and bright!
 
 
      Please take a trip over to Eclectic Ellapu and check out the rest of the fab DT's work and join in the fun - we'd love to see your work :)
 
 
           I would like to enter these into the challenges at -
 
 
Thanks for stopping by :)
