A tag - TH wannabe, yep thats me

Yea I know I should be done with Christmas, but I am not, I just get to enjoy it a little longer than most because I'm always so far behind on my to do list. Note to self: New Years resolution, throw away to do list, Ha! 
This was a tag I put on a present I gave for Christmas, luckily I took a photo of it before I gave it away, actually I made four homeade tags in all, this is my favorite.  I tried after watching the TH 12 days.  I need improvement.  I distressed the edges. I stamped the background image with a stamp I absolutely love the christmas collage from SU.  You can't see it all that well but its back there, also stamped the december, and the 25.  I added paint to the 25 , just like TH (mmm mine doesn't look near as good as his, I need more practice.  I also tea dyed this tag, which was new to me, first time, I really like the results.  My embellishments are the ribbon and snowflake.
These are the challenges I am entering in:
Pile it on- It's all in the wrapping
