Christmas tag with non-Christmas set!

I have been enjoying following along with the 25 Tags of Christmas!  It’s been a busy time in life and I wasn’t sure I was going to get to play along.  But I’m excited to be making time for stamping again and it’s Day 17 – so I’ve still got time to play!  I’ve been so inspired each day as I look at all the tags that so many talented stampers have created.

A few days ago, I saw a post somewhere (and I feel bad I can’t remember where!) that talked about making a Christmas card out of a stamp set that wasn’t even Christmas themed.  I wanted to make that a challenge for myself.  Since I don’t have a Christmas set by Avery Elle, and that is the sponsor for day 17, I grabbed my “Petals and Stems” set by AE and created a Christmas tag with it!  Here it is

The sentiment is from the Fa la la stamp set by Simon Says stamp and I also added a few clear sequins (but you can hardly see those!)

I hope to play along some more!  Maybe even everyday for this last week of the event. Avery Elle Christmas 5
