OMG Loll, your Christmas tag is Sheer Golden Elegance my friend. Your rubber band technique on black CS adds a wonderful subtle texture that makes your gold gorgeous die cut spray really pop! I love your pretty gold ribbon that adds to the effect. TFS and hosting your awesome tag event.

I love Susan's pretty text background and gold accents too. I am off to check out her description. Hugs, Nancy

The range of creativity and techniques on these tags are awesome! I made some gift tags yesterday for first time as inspired by this challenge and had so much fun. They are not post worthy but a good first start using what I had. Plus am inspired by some of the tag techniques to use on cards. Thank you,Loll, and everyone for sharing wonderful ideas!!

Jeanne said...

Magnificent tag, Loll! So elegant and beautiful. I am amazed at the techniques you can put on one tag. The second tag is beautiful as well. I so enjoy the colors and that pretty ornament die. Lots and lots of inspiration here! :)

Elegant, delicate and so stylish, Loll ... and such lovely softness in the background to Susan's fabulous gold ornament! Hugs, Anita :)

The gold and black is so dramatic Loll and the rubber band embossing in the background is wonderful, also the gold poinsettia and foliage which stands out beautifully against it. Susan's tag is really pretty with the soft script background and the two tone gold bauble and a complementary sentiment too. x
