Reverse Confetti is the featured sponsor for today, which is Day 23 of the series. Before I get to my tag, I also wanted to let you know about a Reverse Confetti sale going on right now through Sunday:

And here's my tag:

I started by building a wreath using the Leafy Wreath Confetti Cuts dies. I love that you can go with a simple diecut base layer as your wreath, or build up layers with all the little extras that are included in the die set. It's no secret I love my layers, so I opted to tuck in lots of different bits and pieces to create a very full look.


The base of the wreath was cut from Cloud White card stock, then sponged in Reverse Confetti's Lime Green and Avocado inks. Next I added extra leaves, branches that I cut from Stone card stock, and berry clusters made of Cloud White and Brick card stock and topped with Ruby Slippers Stickles. For some added visual texture, I spritzed the Stone branches with white opaque mist.

The ornament was stamped with Vintage Ornaments in Brick ink, metallic silver ink, and RC Aqua ink onto Vintage Ornaments Confetti Cuts die-cuts. I adhered the wreath and ornament to a circle tag base that I cut using a Lacy Scalloped Circle Confetti Cuts die. 

To the top, I attached a Hang Ups, Too tag hanger in Stone card stock and accented with some Caribbean Solid Twine.

I cut two Lacy Scalloped Circles for the tag base, so that I could add a stamped "to/from" to the inside. I used an image from With Love for that. Last, I cut a stitched circle out of Very Merry patterned paper, cut it down, and added it above and below for a little extra color.
