Lilac Tag

Hello Blogland friends!
Keeping with the Christmas theme, I thought I would share with you a festive tag. 
 Untraditional colours but still very winter-like.  
I love the plain kraft luggage tags that you can pick up in most stores, 
with just a few additions they can be transformed. 
I used the gorgeous Spellbinders™ Snowflake Pendant and then added two Layered Poinsettias, I cut those from pale lilac cardstock and rubbed the edges with some Colorbox chalk fluid.  A piece of dotty ribbon and a little bit of bling and ready to go!  
As you read this I'm heading off to Bath and The Cotswolds - a Christmas shopping trip, 
I will share photos on my return, rain rain go away....please!
Have a great weekend.
Take care,

I love the lilac, it is so different from the same old traditional colours. I have this die so will likely give it a go. Thanks for your great posts. Regards, Anne Rx

What a fab tag. So soft and gentle in lilac.
Oh you were (are) a lucky girl visiting Bath, that is one of my favourite places on earth. Lovely niche shops and architecture. Best wishes Linda
