Inspired by the first extra week at the Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are well and happy! Things are starting to get back to normal around here - we took the Christmas tree down yesterday so the house has that bare feeling! Still I quite like that!

Today I'd like to share with you a tag I made for the thefunkiejunkie challenge-12-tags-of-christmas bonus tag 1 which is sponsored by the thefunkiejunkie boutique.  Linda's original tag is here - I love this one but didn't have any frosted film or the holly die - so I used my mums marianne holly die and made this: I was particularly inspired by the holly, the paint splatters and the red gingham bow.



I started with a kraft tag from ranger and stuck 4 diecut holly branches to it using cosmic shimmer glue. Then I covered the whole tag with cosmic shimmer gold pearl texture paste and left this to dry. I added some of the same texture paste to some modge podge moulds to make the birds and left these to dry. Then I splattered the green holly branch with white paint and when dry added this and the white holly branch to the tag. I stamped the sentiment - from inkylicious - then added the bow and the pearls. Finally I added the birds.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
