Simon Says Tag It!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  Let it Snow Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too


This week the challenge is Tag it!

We are showcasing Tim Holtz Products we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Here is card for the challenge using Tim Holtz products.

Season's Greetings

I started with sponging Pine Needles, Ripe Persimmon and Gathered Twigs on Tim Holtz's Festive layering stencil. Then I die cut a tag using Pretty Pink Posh's stitched Duo Banner die. I also die cut a vellum tag using using the same die for an over lay. On top of the vellum overlay I have added wreath with two birds and bow from Simon Says Stamp called Chisholm Wreath. I die cut all the elements in the die set using white cardstock, then sponged the different elements with distress inks. The wreath with Gathered Twigs, the birds with Festive Berries distress ink and the bow with Delicata Gold ink. The sentiment is die cut from gold foil cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Season's Greetings die set.

On the card front, I sponged Crushed Olive and Peacock Feather distress ink with spatters of Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine. I then mounted the layered  tag on the card front using foam adhesives. I finally embellished the wreath with Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry 6mm sequins with Diamond Stickles in the middle.

Hope you like my card. So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
