Christmas spotlight tag

i gotta tell you straight off my bloggy friends that this business of Christmas cards is wearing me a little thin.
However having said that i know that a few of my Christmas celebrating friends and family will be quite cross me being a card maker if i dont make the effort to make something for them.
So i am on a bender of making tags.  I saw the challenge on Moving along with the times to use a spotlight technique, which i havent done for a while, so here i am entering their challenge.  will list another couple at the end of my post.
of course the stamps from Magnolia Sweden, the background is the winter day background, i just strategically masked my Edwin on top of the house so you couldnt see it.
the papers are from Graphics 45
i gave my layers a good going over of Gesso which i gotta say i am loving, and then of course everything got the stickle treatment and loads of pearls, buttons and some jute twine.
challenge i am entering with this card:
Addicted to stamps: tags
Stamptacular Sunday: for the love of Tilda
