Day 9 Of 12 Tags!

When I viewed Tim's 9th tag this morning I thought to myself, "Wow, this looks easy and will only take me an hour tops!" Perhaps if I would have stuck with Tim's design, it would have only taken a short time...but no! I decided to keep pulling stuff from my stash, try it on, get more, etc., etc., etc.! It was like an eight hour episode of What Not To Wear. Except that, I did not learn anything and left the show still looking like the "chandelier from a brothel". Yes...that would be my title for this tag! Instead of the cool vintage Christmas chandelier I had swimming around the corners of my mind, it came out like this...high on creative crack! I really think my first mistake was using a black tag. The chandelier ended up lost amongst the patterns of the double embossed image. The background is beautiful, but it and the chandelier just don't mesh. So I kept adding stuff to make it pop, and now it belongs above Madame Porter's boudoir. Oh well, we are kind of big, flashy, and gaudy here in Texas...or is that just my tag!?!
