Tim's Tags Day Five

Happy Friday everyone and hope you have better weather as we have today. The wind finally went and I woke up to glorious sunshine this morning although it's very cold. I'm hoping it stays like this over the weekend as the last few days haven't been that great.
I've got another improvised tag to show you but before I do that I just want to say how sad I am to have heard that we've lost the lovely Sarah Lawrence, the very talented lady behind Crafty Notions, her company that produces Karantha stamps, gilding flakes and the gorgeous inky sprays. I was lucky enough to meet her on several occasions and admire her beautiful stitching creations so will miss her a lot.
I'm still somewhat behind with my tags but here's number 5:

Improvisation list:
Art Impressions snowflake instead of seasonal reflections stamp. I'd also like to say if you haven't done Tim's technique for this yet that a stamp with bold lines is required as I tried one with fine lines and you couldn't see the resulting image very well.
I didn't have the die either so used a Martha Stewart hydrangea punch and Woodware leaf sprig punch to make my wreath which is set on a backing of hessian (burlap) cut out with Nestie circle dies.
I finished off with some copper letter tiles and a simple ribbon at the top.

I'm linking this up to Tim's 12 Days of Christmas Tag 5 and also Inspiration Emporium where you can buy the supplies and link up your tag for a chance at some lovely prizes.
I'll be back a little later with tag 6 and wish you happy crafting in the mean time.
