25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 9

 

Good morning!  I've got another tag to share today.  This time we are using products from Pink & Main.

Today I am using Pink & Main's Fa La Llama set.  I have a niece who loves llamas (a couple of them actually), but one in particular who I always think of when I see them, so from the get go I knew I would be making this tag for her.  And she influenced every decision I made on this tag from the colors to the sparkle.
I embossed the tag in silver and then watercolored it with pink, purple, and aqua...some of my nieces favorite colors.  After the llama was colored and cut out I hemmed and hawed and tried about a million things to finish the tag.  At one point I pulled out some embellishments thinking I might add a few around the llama.  I had a variety out not knowing which one I wanted, but they looked kind of beautiful all mixed together on the mat.  At this point, I made a really bold decision and decided to use all of them as a really fancy ground for this llama.  
I second guessed myself a bunch of times after I completed the tag, but in the end decided this niece not only loves sparkle, she is full of sparkle and pizazz.  If I was going to go over the top for anyone, she would be the one to do it for.  

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope you are having a happy start to a new week.  If you haven't already checked out Tracey's blog to see what all the other designer's created, make sure you do that!
