Happy Birthday Tim Holtz

Linda from Studio L3 has invited us to make something for Tim Holtz to celebrate is birthday and Grungy Monday #31. Also added TH stamped images on the envelope. It should arrive at his home before Saturday.
Update 1-10-12: Tim posted birthday cards on his blog. I saw my tag just left of the car with Mickey, Tim and Mario. See it here: http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2012/01/thanks-for-the-wishes.html

I used a variety of Tim Holtz supplies and products on this tag.
The P4-1088 is a mounted stamp I bought in 2007. This was my first time to use Snow Cap alcohol ink; I love it!
The background on the tag was made using Tim's technique from Day 7 2011: http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/12/12-tags-of-christmastag-7.html
The tag looks best in real life. I have a lot of trouble taking photos of gold dabber paint. Maybe I should have snapped the photo without a flash.
Thanks for Looking!
