Anything but a Card over at Lexi's Creations

This is my entry as a Guest Designer over at Lexi's Creations, where the challenge this fortnight is to make "Anything but a Card".
I got to choose an image from Fairy Dust Crafts , and I chose the "Bauble Spiral Christmas Tree". I really like the whimsical design of this image.
I've always struggled making tags, and last year I didn't have time to make more than one or two, so I've decided to start earlier this year...
I've made the tags using Sizzix rounded tags dies. I wanted to paper piece the image, so I printed the image onto a white paper with structure and onto a kraft base. The one to the left has baubles made of red Stickles and silver Liquid pearls, and it's been decorated with red star sequins and twine. The one to the right has diamond Stickles, gold Liquid pearls and star sequins, as well as seam binding ribbon.

These tags are also for these challenges:
1) ABC Christmas Challenge - Quick
2) Crafting for all Seasons - #59 Tag
3) The Glory of Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
5) CHNC challenge extra for September - Anything Christmas Goes

Pia, these are gorgeous! LOVE the stamping and white on kraft! :) I got your questions about HOC--our rule is that you need to use AT LEAST three colors from the combo, but you can use any colors found in the photo inspiration! So, don't go crazy and use rainbow colors, stick to the colors in the photo inspiration. :) Hope that helps! I'll add that rule to the blog. Mynn xx
