Vintage Red & Green Christmas Tag

Well I could have sworn I saw a challenge for a vintage tag so this is what I came up with but then I couldn't remember which challenge it was or where I saw it !!! lol just like me to lose the plot !! lol so I never did find it !!Anyway it fits a few other challenges so all is not lost.
To make this tag I used a giant tag cut from my own design die and the trees are also cut using one of my own design dies (you may have seen me making them on WOYDW) they are cut in Vintage red BG DP from the figgy collection I have distressed them with Tim Holtz Vintage photo Distress ink.
The flourish stamps are from the new Whiff of Joy Christmas flourish set I have stamped them in Versafine Vintage Sepia ink the sentiment is from Hot off the press.
Other things I used ;
BasicGrey Green Button & Twine
Cream Lace from Tabby craft
Deep red Prima Christmas flowers
Vintage Ruby gems from K&Co
I have entered my tag into the following challenges;
Allsorts challenge Buttons
Pile it on challenge/ Flowers & Flourishes
2 red bananas Challenge winter/Christmas
Frosted Designs Challenge Same shape - different sizes
Corrosive challenge Christmas Red & Green
Cupcake craft challengeRed & Green
Ginger snap challenge Winter wonderland
