Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Thursday, friends! It's time for another


and I am glad to be joining in! You'll find the list of all the blogs on Nichole's blog here. The November Blog Hop Challenge is to create holiday tags. Here is mine:



I only own one christmas set so far, so the possibilities were a bit limited and I had to be creative :) The sentiment is from the Tree Trimming Trio set and the flourish from the Embellishments set. I wanted the tag to be "useful", not simply a piece of paper to write a name on and decided to create an embellishment that can be used again and again. This felt poinsettia is a brooch:


To create it, I used the larger leaf from the Delightful Dahlia dies. Easy!

Happy Hopping and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
