A warm welcome to my new followers Carol, Caroline and Nikki- it's lovely to see you and thank you for visiting!
Have been on a bit of a whirlwind card make the last few days with the Christmas cards - hope I am now finished - !!! I am beginning to think I am sickening for something as it's not my usual style to be organised - normally I am 'last minute annie'...LOL (I may yet live up to that as I hate addressing the envelopes - so will probably end up leaving it for as long as humanly possible!!!!)
Most of my cards this year have been quite CAS but I have done a couple of more elaborate ones (only cos I got bored!)
Here's today's share - which is all printed onto linen textured card stock.
I used basic cream card and the background paper is I think from Papermania - cream with gold foiled spots...
I distressed the edges then added some WOW Ultra fine gold embossing powder randomly.
The music paper got the same treatment!
I was a little less 'heavy handed' round the edge of the tag but embossed as much as I dared, popped in a gold eyelet and threaded some cream organza ribbon through it then used more ribbon and tied into a bow.
I used some gold stringy fabric type stuff behind the music print - have no idea what this is called!! And finished it all off with a couple of bronzey gems and a Christmas French Horn charm.

We had a real heavy frost this morning and it hasn't disappeared completely, but at least it's stayed dry! Thanks for calling in and if you've left me a comment I really appreciate you taking the time. x
