Christmas Tags

I don't normally make tags for gifts.  But I have seen some stunning ones lately, and with the PTI blog hop this month being a challenge to create a set of 5 gift tags, I decided to give it a try.
 I think they came out really great!  I made all 5 the same except I changed up the glitter on the poinsettia.  I started with the full on gold glitter and then decided it might be a little much for a guy's gift, so then I toned it down a bit by using a glitter pen to add just a bit of sparkle and shine.  the frames are all embossed in gold and they look so elegant this way.
 No, I didn't write the names in already, but I discovered how to add text in photo editing a while ago and thought it would be fun to add names to the tags so you could see what they will look like.  Pretty cool, huh?

Challenges:
PTI October Blog Hop--set of 5 gift tags
My Heart's Pieces--anything Christmas
Southern girls--shine on (use glitter, embossing powder, perfect pearls, etc.--I used glitter and embossing powder)

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI "Mat Stack 2" 
Dies: Spellbinders poinsettia die

Wow, Heather, these are lovely! I have to say, love the glitter pen ones the best. Seems to accent the beautiful poinsettia perfectly.
