I'm going to be honest has much has I love seeing amazing tags from other people its not something I do unless its really quick and easy ones for Christmas. So this challenge is a real challenge for me and as soon as I see we have to use Tim Holtz products I tried to create similar to the great man himself which is way out of my comfort zone. But I love how my tag turned out.
First off the card is from Authentique Joyous but one of the plain ones that back the design lucky I didn't like the pattern on the other side. I then stamped the fir from Tim Holtz 2014 Christmas Blueprints twice. Then using a gold pigment inkpard I quickly before it dried stamped the brick wall using a wooden stamp called  Bricked its quite small stamp so I had to use it several times helped out with a Stamp a ma jig.  I used gold embossing powder in my stash. The pointesettia from the blueprints set was paper pieced with some red and green from the same Authentique pack.
I then did something foolish and used a white pen on the fir and hated it so I tried to rub it off but it left a bit of residue which actually give me the look I was looking for. I added a bit of gold ribbon again from my stash and stuck it on a card so I could photo it better.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
