Tim's December 2014 Tag

I missed the November tag and did not want to miss the last one of 2014 -  especially since I had almost everything Tim used on his tag!  (that's pretty scary and indicates I've been shopping TOO much!)
So - here is Tim's Tag and you'll find his tutorial for it here.
I changed a few things - not quite having everything Tim used -  I used clear Shrink Plastic instead of Frosted.
I used a Wendy Vecchi Ornate Dots stamp instead of a snowflake stamp on the background, you can see it behind the embossed bubbles above!  I used different colors of blue and green, a different foliage die and a different embossing folder on the clear panel.  
I stapled the clear panel to the tag instead of sewing it - and I added a piece of holly with 3 red berries to my deer as well as a rhinestone eye - but all in all - I ended up with pretty much the same result - which I love and I learned some new techniques for coloring my tag, ribbon and the piece I used for the foliage! Whoo hoo!
