ATC based on Tm's December 2012 Tag #2

Tim Holtz posted the last two tags of 2012 yesterday. Check out his blog for fab step by step instructions.
I made an ATC using several of the techniques he showed on the second tag of December 2012.
Start by pressing some red Distress Stain on a craft sheet along with some tarnished brass Distress Stain. 

 Drag a manilla card down into the Distress Stains and twist around pick up the stains. Dry with a heat tool, pick up more stain, spray with water to blend the colors and heat set again.
Adhered Melange Tissue Wrap over grunge paper, cut out with the Tattered Poinsettia Die and colored with Distress Inks. I cut the largest of the poinsettia into individual leaves, so it will fit on the ATC.
 Applied some rock candy Distress Stickles over the pieces and let dry.
 Cut a flourish out of grunge paper and color with tarnished brass Distress Stain and let dry.
 Colored over the dried Distress Stickles with brushed corduroy Distress Ink. Used the ink to also color the edges of all the grunge paper pieces.
 Used tarnished brass Distress Stain on a large flourish stamp and stamped onto the background.
 Curled down the edges of the poinsettia petals and adhered with hot glue gun.
 Added a "Be Merry" piece of paper after coloring the edges with brushed corduroy Distress Ink. Added a decorative brad to the center of the  poinsettia.
