... another Merry & Bright Christmas tag

Yes, another Christmas tag.

This layered tag was started with a sheet of woodgrain cardstock from the Kaisercraft Base Coat 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" paper pad ... it is filled with gorgeous designs, love it so much that I have several in my stash.  The tag die is the largest from the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Tag Collection die set. 

I have used the same colour combo I used for my Christmas cards and tag shared in earlier posts, the link is attached below.  The colours for the challenge are coral, lime and aqua, so I used American Crafts weave cardstock in Salmon (coral), Limeade (lime) and Mediterranean (aqua), along with the aqua in the patterned paper.

The layered wreath is from the Winnie & Walter In Bloom - Paulina's Greenery Cutaways.  They are such fun to mix 'n match and layer together.  I layered three wreaths together, curling the leaves for dimension.

I layered some of the sprigs of leaves from the Winnie & Walter In Bloom - Paulina's Greenery Cutaways together at the top of my wreath and popped some sequins on top.  The sequins are Lime 6mm & 12mm sequins by Maria George.

I die cut "merry" using the Winnie & Walter In A Word - Merry Cutaway in Salmon cardstock several times and layered them together.

The "& brights" is from the FREEBIE Winnie & Walter The Daily Grind Collection Volume 1 Holiday Mint Addon - I printed the "& bright" faintly on my tag from the Merry & Bright sentiment.  I traced over the sentiment with a glue pen then smothered it with American Crafts WOW! Citron glitter.  WOW - my "& bright" sparkles so prettily and the font looks fabulous in combination with the "merry" cutaway.

I am going to enter my card in the following challenges:
