Vintage Christmas Ornament

Hi there!!!  I've been working on this off and on all day! Well, actually I have been creating this in my head for a couple of weeks now, and finally had time today to make it!  I cut two pieces of thin chipboard packaging  to the size of 4 1/2 x 3 1/2..  I also cut the same size from SU! Christmas designer paper.  Then I used Mod Podge to glue the designer paper to the chipboard.  On one of the rectangles I cut out a Spellbinders oval.  I smoothed all of the edges with a sanding block and sponged with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.  Then I stamped the image from Our Daily Bread designs called Reason for the Season, with the Vintage Photo ink onto Neenah Cream card stock and sponged the whole thing with Antique Linen ink.  I sandwiched this piece between the two chipboard pieces with the designer paper showing front and back, gluing everything together with Mod Podge.  Once this dried, I used my crop-a-dile to punch the holes and add the eyelets.  I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Tag Set onto the same designer paper and cut them out, sponged them and glued them to the ornament.  The lace was originally white and the velvet ribbon was a bright red.  I sprayed these with Brick Glimmer Mist to change the color to match the paper.  I used SU! ribbon to create the ornament hanger and bow.  Oh yeah I forgot to say that I covered the entire oval area with Diamond Glaze and let it dry.  Unfortunately, as you can see, there are lots of bubbles!  Oh well, it is what it is!  Then it was just a matter of gluing the ribbon, lace and buttons down!  I had made a Spellbinders fancy tag and had decided not to use it but I changed my mind and cut it up to use for accent pieces!  
What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
