my tag no 11 for the funkie junkies 12 tags of 2012

well here I am with tag no 11, second post today..
for the lovely Lindas 12 tags of 2012
all the details are here
and Linda's fab tag no 11 can be found here..
the competition is sponsored by Linda's fab online store the funkie junkie boutique
so here is mine:
again very different, but inspired by the flower, the script, the flourishes
and the holly leaves..
I started by clear embossing the flourishes,
inking with iced spruce..
did I say I love this colour!
then stamping script in same colour...
the flower the tattered poinsettia die was cut,
stamped with script and lightly inked
I added holly leaves inked, script stamped and triple embossed..
and some leaves cut from clearly for art and shaped..
ooo...and some wire twirls
finally some dyed seam binding, a little bell centre
some lace and idea-ology token...
I have loved these one to go..
feel sad but have had a ball
and no rock candy distress glitter..
that's two makes in the day and none, not a sprinkle!
have a fun and inky day!
I am entering this for the following :
