Amaryllis Gift Tag - FTTC #96

It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC96)! This week Silke Ledlow is our challenge host and Silke is challenging us to 3D Holiday Gifts! A card can be made to go along with your gift, but a 3D Christmas gift item is the main challenge! We look forward to seeing what you create!

OK, so I didn't REALLY do a 3D project. BUT I had a great idea for a gift and ran with it--that counts, right? It's *for* a gift. Right? I had one more flower from the A Year In Flowers Set 3 to do - December - and it's perfect for a tag for a gift of an amaryllis bulb. You know, the little kits you get with the pot, the soil less potting medium, and the bulb, all in one box. I love them and thought it would be a perfect little giftie for a co-worker. Here it is hanging on a Kraft bag--I keep lots of these on hand since they go with pretty much everything.

And here's a close up of the tag. I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I truly love these images and I'm sorry this is the last one (sniff, sniff). They've been so much fun to do throughout this year.

After I colored it, I cut it out, then proceeded to make the tag. I used a manilla tag as the base, and added some patterned paper from Webster's Pages Waiting For Santa 6 x 6 pad, matted with Always Artichoke. Then I cut a circle of more patterned paper with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die, layered some card stock on it and sponged all the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Finally, I popped the colored image up on the circle and added a little twill bow.
And here are the Copics I used.

Now, be sure to go see what my team mates did with this challenge!
