Let there be "Peace on Earth"

 
Greetings! A special thank you to my new followers! Today, I am sharing at tag for the latest challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge where the theme is to create "A Christmas Tag."  I normally make 8 x 8 inch cards, so making tags is a bit uncomfortable for me but I gave it a go and was happy I did.  I began by stenciling a starry background using a stencil  be Red Lead Paperworks and Distress Spray Stains in Bronze Metallic.  All the stamped images are also by Red Lead.  The bronze stars are by Retro Art Café and the burlap string is by May Arts.  The edges of the tag and the wings of the angels were shined up with Stickles.  I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the Design Team has dreamed up for you and then give the challenge a go for a possible chance to win a gift voucher worth $20 from our generous sponsor, Flonzcraft.  Thank you for stopping by today! Hugs, Yvonne

Hi Yvonne. This is such a beautiful xmas message! Looove the angels and the background has come up a treat. (just quietly - tags are challenging for me too)

Hello Yvonne,
I can identify with your unease regarding making Tags; it takes some adjustment.
It appears to me that you have overcome this little difficulty exceptionally well, as this is a delightful creation.
