Decorative Poinsettia Trimming, Red Gingham, Christmas Tag

I've used nothing more than the colour scheme as my basis for today's tag - which (if you've been counting) is for Day 13 of Tracey's Christmas tag event.

I'm officially at the half way point!!!

Here's the inspiration tag...

As I had already used my cute little bunny stamp I decided to 'ring the changes' and embrace a colour palette I wouldn't normally use.

I'm still having a blast playing along with each and every single day.

Yes, it's a challenge to stretch myself...
...  but that's why I love it!

(And having a more organised craft area certainly helps, too)!

Happy Crafting!

  1. Super tag and I like the simple flower with the stalks very much. Maybe next year I will manage to join in. Hugs Mrs A.

    1. I really hope you do, Mrs lovely A.
      This is my third year in a row. The distraction helps a lot - having to do a tag a day is challenging, but rewarding all at the same time.
      I'm much quicker this year, I think!
      Hugs to you.
      PS. Let me know if you want the name/make of this die. Xxx

  2. Yay, two in a row! LOve the die, first off... adding that one to the list! We wouldn't care if you use the bunny again, btw... but using your clever brain, it's wonderful to see you embrace the colors outside your usual... darling - isn't gingham check always?
    Thanks for playing TAG with us... xx

    1. Oh, I know you wouldn't care if I usd bunny again... but where's the fun in that?
      To me, this challenge is all about stretching myself past my usual... unless of course, my usual is hollering the loudest that day!
      Many thanks for your kind words, sweet friend.
      Sending squishes.

  3. A lovely stylish tag! Barbxx

    1. Thank you, Barb.
      This one's certainly different for me!

  4. Love the use of gingham on this tag Donna, very stylish flower.
    Hugs Pam x

    1. 'Not my thing' at all, Pam.
      Being a good girl and trying something different. ๐Ÿ™‚
