A Three Piece Suite

Hello all, it's me...LIVE, sorry you've had to put up with me twice in one day but I really didn't want to miss a final challenge entry at
particularly as it's taken almost a week to put this together as I've been in and out of work...grrrrrrr!!

A close up of the little chap to show the texture too!

I found the fabulous papers in Wilko together with the additional trimmings (including the bow which I have stupidly covered with my watermark...doh!!). I decided upon an easel for a change, which I covered in aforesaid papers. The lovely little image was a Birdie Brown one. I cut strips of the papers to make the rosettes and backed the larger one with a Marianne die cut so the tag can be written on. It can of course be pegged to the gift bag!! (12x12 paper from my stash and another wilko strip)

You will also find this trio at these challenges

Here come the boys #65 - Sentiment only (It does spell JOY!!)
Crafty Cats #208 - Tags & bags
Just Inspirational - Rosettes
Inky Impressions #136 - Presents and Gifts
Divas by Design - Something Red (? artistic licence!!?)
Stampin for the weekend - Feeling Festive
Sweet Pea Stampers - Lots of texture (pleats, embossed circle, flowersoft on hat & stocking)

TTFN, thanks for coming to see me xx

Beautiful!!! I'm so glad you managed to finish it and get is posted. : ) I LOVE that medallion tag!! The pattern looks so fabulous in the rosette and I think it would also make a gorgeous ornament for the tree. Thanks so much for playing in our final CSAYL challenge of the year!
