Merry & Bright - vintage Christmas tag

Hello! 

I hope you've enjoyed your weekend? Mine has been a bit hectic! I had an interview last week on Thursday (my first) and got the job! Property Management, here I come again! :) I'm starting on 24th November, but I am not giving up my crafting just yet... I can't imagine my life without it, to be honest! 

Today I'd like to share my mixed media vintage Christmas tag that I made the other day and hope you will like it. I won't share how it as made today. It will be revealed very soon so please stick around as I will have a few tips and tricks to share ;) 






I'm still not liking my 500px pics... It's done now though so maybe I'll keep them a bit higher resolution next time... 

What I can tell you is that the Santa stamp is from the Bo Bunny Christmas stamp set. The poinsettia is also a stamp by Penny Black, stamped twice, embossed, cut out and made into a 3D flower. There's mulberry paper behins my cluster of Christmasy goodness, the background was made with Brusho crystals, stencil secret mix through the gorgeous Tim Holtz stencil I received as a gift from Donna (Thanks, Hun!)... let me know if you have any questions!
