Stripes and stripes

Hello Everyone!
This just a quick post to share with you three wine bottle tags for Christmas. I played a bit with embossing pastes and stencils. All three of them are inspired by Tag You're...It! challenge #3, however the first one is the closest to the suggested sketch:

Here they are, and I will link only the fist tag with golden stripes to the TYIT challenge:

Obviously stripes is a new trend, and CASology #107 wants to see projects with stripes as well. I'll link up my golden stripes tag there. I'll also join Addicted to CAS with a code word gold and Simon Wednesday Challenge that likes it sparkling this week.
Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your weekend!
