Tag 12 - Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas

I REALLY disliked this tag on the screen at first...
But as it began to come together, I fell in love with it, big time!  I love the softness and the whimsical feel, with the classic sculpture feel of the fractured doll, and the metallic wings, offset by the softness of the tissue paper flowers.
Here's Tim's tag... Image from HERE
The background technique was really cool - stamping the tag, and layering it with crumpled tissue paper, to add a soft depth.  We had all sorts of trouble with the tissue paper flower (thanks Tim!), so we decided to go back to basics, and make a few tissue paper roses using the tattered florals die instead.
Here's what we came up with!

Mine is on the left (the little angel!) And Michele's is on the right. 
This is definitely one of those tags that is only fully appreciated in the flesh - so much detail is lost on the screen.
I was so sad that this was the last of this year's tags... Can't wait for next year to do it all again! :)
