I'M IN THE MOOD FOR A RED CHRISTMAS

HI EVERYONE
After making all the red table tags for Val's Wedding, I thought, why not a red Christmas card and tag too! Now, I know the tag's a little large (lol) but how about if someone gave you a huge present and needed a huge tag to go with it, this would have be the one!
A perfect matching set!
I used lots of bling and tons of glitter (similar to my blue Christmas card) distressed, pierced the border and added the perfect charm for Tilda to sit on...A diamond heart which was an old earring from early days...added some red satin ribbon, a cute epoxy reindeer, snow white pearls, flower soft to her hat and added a fun sentiment "Believe" to finish it off.
Here's a better look at the card...
and a close up of that diamond earring
I forgot to mention the papers I used and they are red card stock, Cre8tiv patterned paper I bought last year and a beautiful speciality paper called Embossed Ivory Pearl (not sure of the brand)...
Making the card and tag, did take some time though, with all the glitter and bling but I loved making them. And now for all the hard work I would love to add to these great challenge sites :)

Hi Sweet Lynn, Thank you for continuing to be a faithful friend. I have been off an on the computer, now it is my internet service. And sometimes when I try to leave comments I get an ERROR message. (horrors after so much typing from this wordy lady-lol). But now on to the good stuff. I did also peep at your blog a couple times, but saw no card creations. Only prize giveaways. And since I never try to win them, I left no comment. Well, Ms. Lynn, I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this beautiful Christmas creation. As always, your details are amazing! Hope I didn't take up too much space on your blog! lol I will be back again after the winners are announced. :)
