25 Days of Christmas Tags #2

Hello!  I'm back with the second tag I made for Tracey McNeely's the 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

My tag was inspired by Tracey's tag from Day 6:

And my tag:

I actually have the same sentiment that Tracey used on hers, and I LOVE how it looks with this ornament die, but I didn't want to use the exact same thing Tracey did.  I was just thrilled though with the chance to break out these Spellbinder dies and coordinating Vintage Ornament stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps because I bought them several years ago and have only used them one time I think (yikes, not good lol!)  To make the ornament I inked up the stamp with Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, and Broken China distress stains and stamped on watercolor paper.  For the sentiment I used Hickory Smoke distress ink, and Broken China stain for the little swirl underneath the "with Love".  For the holly leaves which are from CTMH, I used the Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick stains and fussy cut.  I found some pretty gray ribbon in my stash and used some of that tied with some twine.  This was super quick and easy to make and I love the distressed vintage look!
