Ornament or Gift Tag?

Hello Everyone!!!  Can you believe that Christmas is coming up fast!!!  I still have a couple of gifts to buy and ALL of them to wrap!!!  YI, YI,YI!!!!  So of course, instead of wrapping I'm playing in my craft room!!  LOL!!!  I was colouring this Christmas Ornament by ODBD and thought it would make such a pretty ornament to hang on our tree.....but then I thought, wouldn't this be a nice gift tag to add to a present......what do you think??

I started by stamping the largest ornament from Ornaments by ODBD in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card.  Then I airbrushed it with a Y35 Copic Marker, making it a little darker on the edges.  I have done a lot of red poinsettias this season, so I decided to change the trend and make this one deep pink!  I used Copics R83, R85 and R89 for the Poinsettia, YG93 and YG95 for the leaves and then accented with Gold Spica on the swirls and centre of the poinsettia.
It is extremely difficult to capture the subtle shimmer of Spica - but I think you get the idea. I actually cut this one out by hand and then matted it with Rich Razzleberry die cut with Spellbinders' Heirloom Ornaments set!  Both the ornaments in this stamp set are designed to fit perfectly inside the Spellbinders dies - how FAB is that!!  :)  You can buy the Ornaments Stamp Set and Spellbinders Die Bundle from ODBD for $39.30!!  To finish I simply added a pink button tied with gold cord and added some gold organdy ribbon to the top.  How easy is that??!!  :)

Stamps - Ornaments (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Rich Razzleberry
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Gold Spica, Heirloom Ornaments Nestabilities, Pink Button, Gold Cord, Gold Organdy Ribbon.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
