12 Tags of Christmas Day 9

Okay, I meant to be good, I really did.  I had almost all of the ingredients.  I was just going to switch it to be more creamy whites than honeyed browns.  And then I was going to put a little angel in the center of the rosette, but found this cute little acetate bird by K and Company on the way to the angel.  Slippery slope!

The background is a page from a vintage hymnal, sprayed with Wheatfields Glimmer Mist (also sprayed the lace at the bottom, the rosette, and one of the ribbons - love that stuff!).  The rosette is paper from gcd studios, with a little antique crocheted rose at the center, and Prima bling.  Along with the tinsel, I also added some copper trim along the bottom and some blingy berries.  Once again, since I didn't want to obscure the title of the carol, I omitted the danglies at the top.

I am having So Much Fun!!!  Hopefully tonight I'll have some time to hop along to all of your beautiful blogs.  You inspire me just as much as - actually, more than - Tim, and I am waaay inspired by Tim.  So you know how much your artwork means to me.  Stay creative, my friends. :)
