Tim times Ten Stampin' Dymonz Grand Giveaway. - Challenge #7-Acetate Tag w/winter or fall theme

Okay Ladies and Gents....This challenge made me dig deep (hehe...)....I thought about this challenge all day.....I've created plenty of acetate cards and tags and I have never second guessed myself like I did with this challenge.....I jotted down ideas throughout the day......and decided whatever the ideas..I would just take the instructions and go with it.........I almost could not plan what I would do...I could only think of the products I would use.......

Okay for Challenge #7 @ Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack we had to make an Acetate Tag.  The acetate must be dry embossed and it must be inked. The tag must be two-layered, include an image, and you must use some type of "dimensional" product to embellish your image ...... (fun flock, flower soft, heat embossing, etc.)  the tag should depict a cold scene -- could be winter or fall and does not have to include snowmen/snow, just ensure you make a good representation of colder weather. The acetate should be from some packaging that you may have at your craft spot in order that you recycle the plastic and help prevent us from killing our own planet with non-biodegradable materials such as plastic...

And here is my take on the challenge...Hope it depicts Fall chilly weather with a lil touch of snow....That's what it feels like in my neck of the woods today...It's almost Spring......... Feels like Fall.....and today you  need scarf, gloves, hat, etc. like winter.....and looks like it's going to be like this the remainder of the week....... (sad face..)

I embossed the acetate using Tim Holtz Alteration Texture Fade-Branch Tree.  I inked it ( did not ink the image of the tree) with StazOn Black Ink Pad.
                                                                                                      Back Tag
I embossed the Manila folder and inked it with brown, yellow and blue inks
                                                                                                                Top of Tag
