It's ornamental!

I'm working on my ideas for the Christmas ornaments I give family each year. What do you think of this one?

I purchased a Sizzix die and cut this stocking out of a white coaster. I then cut out a front and back from a piece of scrap from TAC's retired Merry Wishes SWIC paper. I did have to tape the coaster stocking on both sides to keep the topper from coming off. I used my markers to color the edges so they wouldn't be stark white! After adhering the paper I next attached the topper (a separate piece cut out of the coaster) and coated it with White Liquid Applique then used my heat gun to make it kinda bubble. How cool! I also decided to use my Stardust Clear Gel pen on the green lines for more bling. I think I like it. The die has 3 different ornaments, the stocking, a ball ornament, and a light bulb. The stocking is 3 1/2" tall and 2 1/2" wide.
