25 days of Christmas Tags - The Card Concept

Tracey McNeely is celebrating Christmas again this year with this wonderful event ... now, I don't give actual presents for Christmas, but I'm about to send off a batch of 25 cards, so it's a perfect time to make a tag for the package!

It is Day 4, and I was inspired by Virginia Lu's gorgeous water-colored poinsettia ... perfect timing, Virginia - though mine is totally different, you inspired me to water color!
 
 
I was also inspired by this week's photo from
 
 
Gorgeous isn't it?  With a few distress inks, a gorgeous little Poinsettia from W&W's In Bloom: Elsa's Flora, Miriam Prantner's doily tag die from Neat & Tangled, the perfect die cut from MFT for the 'keys' and MAJOR surgery to an old stamp set that I never use, I was able to put together a sweet little Christmas message!
 


I'm about to make a Christmas wish come true!   shhhh... she may be reading this!  =]
