Baby gift for my niece--Tag, framed silhouette Dancer cut from Cricut, emobssed

My niece is having a baby in February and I put this together for her baby shower gift.   I put a gift card inside but I couldn't just do that.  In the first picture, I used a recycled white gift bag and needed to cover some names written on the bag.  I used a medallion cut from the French Manor cartridge, inked with Stampin up inks, a Little Bundle of Joy stamp and a flower I put together with a little green button brad for the center.  I colored the stamp with colored pencils.  This measures approximately 4" tall.

I made this tag for the baby whose name starts with a "P".     All the pieces were cut from Cricut cartridges including Country Life, and I'll add the others.  The tag is 6" tall.   I made the rosette from a piece of cardstock 1 1/2" by 12" scored every 1/4" .  I added the white stitching around the tag, pearls, ribbon bow, another button brad and recycled silk flowers.  All of the edges are inked with Stampin Up inks.   I didn't intend for this to be a Christmas onament but when my niece opened it up, she said, "oh, her first Christmas ornament."  Cool.

The back of the tag I ran through the Cuttlebug with this floral folder and I inked the inside of the folder with Tie Dye Distress ink.   Then I added some pink and brown ink around the edges and on top of the embossing.
Inside I put together this framed ballerina I cut from the Shall We Dance cart.  I embossed it with black embossing powder on black cardstock but when I make another one of these silhouettes, I will cover it with Glossy Accents or clear embossing powder.  I used a recycled silver frame, inked the mat with pink and green (the baby's room colors)  and mounted the ballerina on a pink patterned cardstock using sheet Glue Dots (one of my NEW favorite things!!!).
