Halfway for Unstampabelles

Today is halfway for the UnstampaBELLES Christmas challenge, and I have another card to share with you all - this one is part of the mammoth final effort I had before I sent all my cards out. I will share some of them  with you another time.

After I had taken this photo, I tightened up the lace strip and added some sparkle to the image, but didn't take another photo of it - the person who received it doesn't know 'bout blogs and such, so I cannot get another photo to show you! It does look much better! Promise!

The card has some washi tape, some lace threaded with ricrac, some bling and a vintage image; a rub-on for the sentiment and the red paper has been punched along the edge decoratively!All this was added to a card blank and the background paper is I think Kaiser.  But it might not be - by the time I had made over 30 cards, there was paper stroon across the room and all mixed up.  I have finally wrangled it all back into some semblance of order and put it in the Christmas stuff box and put it away tidily under my desk. So I won't be going looking for the maker now, will I!!!!!

Hope you like it - I did. 

I will enter it in a few challenges:

I made some tags as well.  I played in TH inks and stuff and then turned them into tags for Christmas. 

Various stamps and die cuts were added, and flowers and bling. I made use of the LOTV Vintage corners, and sentiment stamps and some of WMS as well.  I used the ribbon scraps that were laying around on the desk.  The really purple one was the last one through the swipe process and the green ornament one was the first - I kept adding ink to my sheet,and swiping a bit more.  This is just the four large ones - there were a few smaller ones as well, but they got more saturated as I didn't know what I was really doing at that stage - not that I ended up knowing really either - it was all just hit and miss!

I will enter these in the following:
