Too Early Tag

     I have a Christmas tag for you today.  It's actually made from some leftover bits from yesterday's card and a few odds and ends.

     The background paper was leftover from the background on the card.  I cut the edges with a Spellbinders die.  The paper is colored first with a Copic marker and then I went over it with Wintergreen Distress Ink.  The label on the top was stamped four times and colored with Berries Distress Ink and with the Wintergreen and Copic. I lightly distressed the sentiment with some Old Paper and a little Berries and outlined it with Stickles.  All the embellishments came from my "Red Drawer"  I just poked around in it until I found the bits and pieces that worked for me.  The lace in the background was from a wide spool of wired ribbon, I just tore off the wire, the red roses are made with Fimo  that I made put into a latex mold.

I have entered this into the JustRite Christmas in July Challenge
