Ornament Swap

****For My Blog Makeover Giveaway, click HERE****


So, I finally spent some time in my craft room yesterday.  I had signed up for my first ever Oranment Swap over at Pink by Design and yesterday was the last day to get them in the mail!!  Here is what I came up with.  I really love blue, silver and white for christmas and I love snowmen and snowflakes, even though I live in Southern California!!

The base of the ornament was cut from Art Philosophy at 6", the top layer was cut at 5.80".  The cute little snowman and his layers is from Winter Frolic, I beleive I cut him at 3".  The paper is from an old DCWV Winter Stack.  I embossed the base layer with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder.

Here is a closeup of the snowman.  I don't know what cart the snowflake is cut from, I had a bunch of them left over from last years cards!!  I used Peachy Keen's Christmas Face Assortment for his face.  I used Stampin Up's Brocade Blue to ink the edges, and added some bling to his scarf.

This tag is from MarthaStewart and the sentiment is from Crafty Sprouts "Have a Cool Yule" stamp set.  I added some glitter gel pen.   I also added some bling from Recollections. 
I made the ornament 2 sided, and the snowman is on an Action Wobble.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Papercraft Weekend Challenge - November Inspiration Challenge (Use blue, white & silver)
Craftysprouts - Anything Goes

Happy Crafting!!
