"Fab 'n' Funky" Challenge

Good morning everybody. I hope you are all well? I'm hoping that this post appears when I have kindly asked it to do so as I will be at work tomorrow, so won't be able to change anything! lol.

Well it the 1st Challenge over at "Fab 'n' Funky" challenges and the DT were given a gorgeous sketch to work with. I have to be honest and say that the sketch stumped me at first and then I thought that if I turned the sketch over, all the different positions made it look like a present with the oval being a tag. Can you see what I mean?

Anyhow, that's what I did . . . a present! The papers & vintage image are from one of the exclusive downloads from the Funky 12 Days of Christmas Workshop. I have punched some decorative borders with my new SU punch and then further decorated these strips/bits with some ribbon scraps.

I do adore this image and never thought I would be into the "vintage" look but have to say that I am getting converted . . . very quickly. Must get me some Kraft card now as I think these images would look fab against the Kraft Card.

I finished off my large tag with some Basic Grey swirls, a heart button and a red felt poinsettia flower (which was a Tesco decoration !). Have dotted some Perfect Pearls around too just because ! ! ! All the DT are looking forward to you all joining in with us on our 1st challenge and hey, forgot to mention that there is a prize this week too !

I am also entering my card into:

Papertake Weekly Challenge which this week is "Christmas Crackers" - which is anything seasonal really !

Kaboodle Doodles - challenge to use buttons, bows & bling. I have used the heart shaped button on the tag; a bow on the top of my tag and sewn some seed beads onto my poinsettia which is my bling !

PollyCraft Challenge - the challenge has been set by Ria and it is "Wonderful Christmas Time". Even though I haven't used a Pollycraft image, I do think my card fits into the theme . . . !

My Time to Craft Challenge - the theme is "Vintage" and I hoping my Christmas card looks & feels vintage enough.

Phew, I think that's it because I don't think I could type another word !

Take care everyone and going to have a serious blog hop tonight.
