Vintage Tag for The Pals Paper Arts Challenge

Hello everyone! I am joining the Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week, as the team leads us with this color challenge. I have been making tags for my wrapped packages that have stacked up! 

Here I made a vintage looking tag using the Apothecary Accents Framelits, Large Oval, Medium Oval and Scallop Oval punches. I used my Stampin' Write Markers to color in an image from the Very Merry Tags stamp set. The "to" and "from" are also part of the same set. I gussied up my large oval by adding some Baked Brown Sugar Stretch Ruffle Trim. I colored my Whisper White Taffeta ribbon using a sponge dauber and my Rose Red ink pad.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired and I hope you are not harried this season! I always take time for myself to just sit and look at my decorated tree, listen to some Christmas music and have a cup of tea. It's important!

This year everything is finished early and I await my daughter and her family, who will join us from Hawai'i. What are your Christmas plans? Are you traveling or staying in town? I'd love to read your comments and plans below!

Oh, so pretty! I love the ribbon around the oval. The mistletoe toe stamp is adorable. I think I have used every one in the set but that one. Hmmmm.....don't know why! Thanks so much for sharing!
