Everyone is saying this is an easier tag and I thoughtit was going to be too, but I have really struggled with this one, maybe because I don't do "bling" ! I would have loved to do the facet, its beautiful but of course I don't have any, I found this big "gem" in some poundshop stones but instead of just sticking it on I tried to be clever, scraped the metal looking stuff off the back with a knife and then stamped and embossed white snowflakes on the back of it, of course they don't even show unless you look really hard, then I tried to make a hole in the top and snapped a bit off so had to glue it back together with glossy accents , hence the bow with the rest of the beads to hide the crack, I think I must be mental doing this ! The back ground paper is from Paperartsy, Santa stamp is Crafty Secrets. Stamped asnd Inkadinkado jewelled swirl and stuck on papermania gemstones, bit of lace and some dangly braid stuff on the bottom. The only thing I did have was the adage ticket and I stuck in on the opposite side to the one on Tim's tag as I didn't want to cover my jewelled swirl up. Phew........ . Now I need to get the dinner started as I want in to be cooking while I watch Strictly Come Dancing.
