Christmas Decoration..........

Inspired by 12 tags -Day 1

While I was making my tag here for Day One of the 12 tags from Tim Holtz I also made this Christmas decoration using some of the techniques for the tag, as I don't have the pine cone die yet  I improvised with a spellbinders die.... the one that cuts in a swirl and makes a flower.... I cut this  in glassine paper and made  as the pinecone instructions on Day 1 of 12 tags and the other I cut from the tattered flower die using the 6 petal one and made a flower or open pine cone.... go with which ever it looks like to you......or maybe it doesn't look like either lol!!!
 Foliage was cut using festive greenery alterations die Main shape was alterations die ornamental....... and  cut in grungeboard background is cut from TH core'dinations paper stack which I rubbed over some white paint and then removed while wet in places and stamped snowflakes(TH) and embossed in white. Hope was cut with alterations die and glittered in silver lastly I added stickles to the outside edges.
