Tim Holtz Christmas Tag - Simon Says Stamp and Show

This week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Show is to create a Tim Holtz style tag.  I made this one during the first 12 days of December when Tim was posting his daily tags.  I had the tree cut from last years tag making so that saved me a step.  After painting it with acrylic paint, I applied Rock Candy Crackle paint and let it dry. 
I stamped and applied Distress Inks to a manila tag and added the homemade banner and the tree.  Finishing it off is the bottom trim cut from the Seasonal paper pad, border punched and a few copper brads for accents.
