My day 5 Tim tag

Earlier today I shared with all of you my first four version's of Tim Holtz's Christmas tags. I just now finished my 5th tag.
I didn't have  several of the items that Tim used and had to create my own pieces. I stamped the number25 onto grungeboard, cut the numbers out and then embossed them with white embossing powder. To the numbers I added green rhinestones. I used a piece of musical note ribbon for a banner that I adhered to torn green paper as I didn't have the die Tim used.  I also used a grungeboard oval that the center was open, and the ribbon shows through. I then added red brads to the grungeboard oval piece. The Santa face I've had for years and I don't even remember what stamp company it came from, as it wasn't marked on the back. I rubber stamped small holly leaves and added green glitter glue and then red glitter glue for the holly berries. I glittered Santa's hat and his beard. The ribbons are red/gold and a silver and white pompom that kind of looks like snow. The Merry Christmas stamp is a Posh Impressions design, but sold under by the Rubberstampede  rubber stamp company.
Anyway, this was my version of day number 5.

They are all wonderful, Elaine! I'm in awe of what you do with paper, stamps, etc. I hope these tags find a permanent home, so much thought and time went into them. Really, they are little works of art.
