Better late than never

Here we go again - by the skin of my teeth.  This is my card for the Bah Humbug Challenge asking for Tags or Labels.  I'm not very good with tags and  most of my previous efforts ended up in the bin, that was until I decided to just use the label for the sentiment.  The image is  Judikins - A Partrige in a Pear Tree, I have used variegated metal leafing flakes, it appears that I missed the odd grain of stamp n bond powder before heating it as there are some dots of the leafing that I can't get off.  The paper is from a Papermania pad I bought for last Christmas and never used.  The flower is from my stash as are the brads, ribbon and matting cardstock.  I'm not sure where the sentiment stamp came from, probably Elusive Images because I have a few of  Glenda's Christmas Plates.  The tag was cut from a Spellbinder nestie tag set. 

Sorry it's not a very good picture, but as it's 10.45 pm  this is the best I could get.  Thank you for visiting and for any comments you may wish to make, I appreciate every single one.  Beryl x
