The Flower Challenge # 15

Hi everybody and welcome to our last challenge at The Flower Challenge for 2017!!! And we have a doozy for you this month:

That's right, you can create anything you like with a floral design but it can't be a card!!  This one stumped me for a bit but I suddenly realised it was a good chance to create some Christmas tags:

I wanted to have a design that wouldn't take too long to replicate but still looked pretty. So of course I turned to heat embossing!!

I die-cut tags from pink, blue, red and watercolour CS using a tag from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Tag Buddies Fri-Dies'. I then stamped and heat embossed a poinsettia image from Rosies Studio 'Nature's Noel' using Ranger Embossing Powder in Queens Gold. I then used my Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the open petals for a bit of bling. 

The sentiment was also heat embossed with the same Queens Gold powder, using a stamp from Neat and Tangled 'Santa's Ride'. Most of these were put on strips of white CS with one being on red because of the tag colour. I put these on foam tape, along with some co-ordinating sequins also from Neat and Tangled. Lastly I added some gold thread from Value Craft and they were done!!

You have until Monday 25th December (Christmas Day) to link your projects to The Flower Challenge and if your trying to find ideas, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you. And we will be back for a quick reminder on the 15th of this month!
