I've been keeping an eye on the Tim Holtz tags of the month and at last I've actually got around to having a go.  This one is based on his April one and you can see the details on the blog section of his website here.  As usual I didn't quite have all the items he used so a bit of improvisation was necessary.  The background text stamp on the tag is En Francais from Stampin' Up, the little bird is from a set by Chocolate Baroque and the 'dream' ticket is a stamp by Creative Expressions.  The background paper on the DL card is from Papermania  and has been sponged to match the colours on the tag - ribbon was also dyed with the same Distress colours. The embossing folder used and the tree branch die are from Sizzix.


  1. Fabulous tag card the background and the yellow behind your lovely bird...a really great card.

  6. Wonderful card using the tag - really nice!!

  7. Wow, this is really gorgeous. Love the embossed frame (er, I have that and it would qualify for Judith's Forgotten Friday, lol) and anything with script in the background gets my vote. Beautiful blues and the background paper is the perfect compliment to your beautiful tag.
