Glitter much?

Hi!  I am back with my final tag for Linda's The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge.  I  have a few queued up for the next few days.  This one took a glittery turn and once it started I couldn't stop it!

The inspiration for this was Linda's week #12 tag.  You will look at Linda's beautiful vintage tag and wonder how did I get here?  Well it started with me trying to create a pattern in the background like the pretty pattern paper.  I pulled out stencils with patterns which I used to make a few background patterns with.  As I was doing that I thought what if I added texture with embossing paste and oh why not sprinkle it with glitter while it is wet.  

After that I was on the glitter train and it picked up speed!  Needless to say I am covered in pink and green glitter!  I decided to go with a vintage retro Christmas and did a little die diving (meaning digging through my extra pre-cut die images) and found this cardboard deer.  What deer doesn't want to be covered in bright pink glitter?

I then needed a sentiment and decided to use vellum to allow my shimmer background to shine. :) I finished it off with pearls and gems to really add some glam. 

I hope your day was brightened up with all this shimmer and shine. 

Linda's tag challenge is sponsored by her wonderful on-line store called the Funkie Junkie Boutique and I don't do much on-line shopping but I definitely shop at her store.  If you have a little time to get creative you should join in on the fun. 

As always I appreciate you stopping by!
