Happy Holidays!

Greetings!  Today, I am sharing may twelfth and final card for the Twelve Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style, which is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  This is my first time to participate in such a challenge, and I am so glad I did it.  It helped me increase my stash of Christmas Cards, and even more so, it stretched me to create cards I would never have made otherwise. Linda's beautiful tag is shown below. 
I was inspired by the gold embossed background of Linda's tag, the overall red and green color theme and the Happy Holidays sentiment.  The background for my card is a complimentary image I received from Crafty Individuals when I ordered stamps.  The Happy Holidays image by Anna Griffin for All Night Media was given to me by a friend at work who decided to create all her cards on her computer going forward.  To add a bit more gold, I added pieces of a gold heart doily, folding it over the card base edges.  Vintage green seam binding, bits of tartan plaid twill tape, and a vintage button complete my card.  You have until December 17 to join in to be in the running for some generous prizes.  Thanks for dropping by.  Best, Yvonne

Wow, and wow again, Yvonne This is my favorite of all your 12 cards this year. I love the background and the way you used the gold foil doily is perfect. Sensational bow and that tartan ribbon is the icing on the cake! I am so delighted you chose to play along this year! Best of luck in the prize drawing on the 18th!
