Tim Holtz's 12 Days Tags - Day 1

Well I hope everyone is OK as we're snowed under on the south coast today with the most snow I've seen for many years. It's at the lovely, crunchy and powdery stage at the moment and was gorgeous earlier when I ventured out on foot with my hubby to get some shopping for us and his parents. It made me want to be a child again and throw snowballs!!!
I'm a day late with my first tag as I only had one of the requirements apart from the inks and had to put my creative thinking cap on but it made my head hurt! I managed to get it done but I'm still a bit iffy about it.
The things I used instead are as follows:
Crafty Individuals chipboard house instead of Rickety House die
Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder for Alterations Notebook folder
Snowflake stamps from the Reindeer Flight set
Rock Candy Crackle Paint for Picket Fence
Marianne Designs Tree die for Prima wire twigs
Label made with Nestabilities die and Hero Arts stamps
Holly Wreath made from stamped holly (Polka Doodles Christmas Doodles set) and hand cut holly from paper scraps. Red fabric floral centre.
Sparkly Glitter for Ranger Sparkly Stuff
Star Brad
As you see, the only thing I had except for the inks was the On The Fence Alterations Die!

It seems we all struggled with day 1, but I love your tag and particularly the holly wreath, that certainly got me stumped.
