Bugaboo Ornament

Hello all. Today at Crafting With Dragonflies we are asking you to make a Christmas ornament for the tree or wall. Our fabulous sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and my image is Fancy SB Christmas. I mostly paper pieced her and then colored her using my Prismacolor pencils and lots of Stickles. There are some of my fellow Dragonflies that love their Liquid Pearls and never quite know where to stop Liquid Pearling...that's me and Stickles. Love them.
My ornament was a Silhouette cut file. It is almost like a card in that it is perforated at the top so that you can open it to add an image or photo if you'd like. I first cut it out of white cardstock and then again using my patterned paper which I glued onto the cardstock. I added Diamond Stickles to the swirls on the patterned paper on the front of my ornament. A wired gold ribbon bow at the top. And green and white twine as my hanger. Even included an authentic photo on one of our pine trees in the yard. Yep, we have snow here, but it hasn't gotten super cold yet. We've had a few really cold nights but thankfully the deep freeze hasn't taken a permanent hold yet. Having only a few minor anxiety attacks that we are less than a month until Christmas, so be sure to join us for our ornament challenge!

How cute is that! All that genuine snow and the tree....and the ornament is super as well! The ribbon matches the fruit/cone thingys on the tree too. Clever idea.

What a fantastic ornament, Barb! That little image is darling and I love the design of the ornament itself.

I am also panicked to think that there is only a month until Christmas. Arghhh!
