A Merry Little Flourished Christmas Tree

I've got another Christmas Tag for you using a brand new stamp from Quietfire Design - Have Yourself A Merry Little Flourished Tree.  I started with a #8 Mixed Media Tag.  The coloring in the background is done with PaperArtsy Infusions.  On top of the Infusions I sponged white paint through the Tim Holtz Plaid stencil.  I really love how it turned out!!  On it I stamped and embossed the Flourished Tree with White Embossing Powder but it got lost in the background so I repeated onto vellum, tore the top and bottom of the vellum and layered it over the first stamping wrapping the vellum to the back.  Gold brads were added to the tree where the larger "ornaments" are.  Gold Stickles was used on the smaller "ornaments" and also on top of the gold brads.  Along the bottom is a row of pine trees from the mini Tim Holtz stencil.  They are stenciled with Grit Paste and then colored.  A piece of Tim Holtz Craft Thread is tied around the bottom of the vellum.  In the corners are die cuts using the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Festive Greens set, colored with Distress Inks and red sticky back gems added.  Finally there is a small bow made with gold ribbon from the Tim Holtz Metallic Trimmings set.

I'm also entering this tag in the Simon Says Monday Challenge - Tear It Up.
