Tim's Tags Day One

Afternoon everyone, I'm here at last with my first tag for the wonderful Tim Holtz's 2011 12 Tags of Christmas which I managed to finish just before the light went so I could get a reasonable photo.
I'm a little late with mine as I didn't have any of the things used on this one so had to do mega improvising which made me scratch my head a little lol.
Here's the finished result which is not quite as embellished as Tim's gorgeous tag but I'm quite pleased with it anyway.


My improvising list is as follows:
Stormy Sky Distress Ink on the tag as no kraft core cardstock
Cuttlebug Snowflake folder
Pine cones made with a Marianne Designs flower die set (which was inspired by Tim's beautiful roses)
Foliage made with Sissix flourish die and a Woodware holly punch.
No Noel die so Basic Grey chipboard letters and a Papermania label die

If you haven't yet seen the gorgeous original if you click on my link Tim's 12 Days Of Christmas Tags 2011 Day One, you'll be transported over to be wowed.

I'm also linking this to Inspiration Emporium and many thanks to Terry for this. Do visit if you do the tags as there are fabulous prizes up for grabs.

Thanks for looking and hope you decide to have a go too as I think the best fun is to be had when you haven't got the supplies.

Hi Fliss: I think you did a fantastic job "improvising"! I like how you changed the Marianne flower rose die into the pinecones.
