Christmas Decoration

When I first saw this image, I wanted to use it to make a Christmas decoration but it took me ages to actually get it done.  It made it in time for Christmas Day - but just.  However, I haven't got around to blogging in until Boxing Day!



I would like to enter my decoration in these challenges:
The East Wind - Christmas

CHNC - Urgently needed for Christmas

I have used an image from The East Wind and fussy cut it.  I flipped the image for the reverse side.  I originally had an idea of printing on to some sort of acetate but the shops were a bit busy by the time I had that idea and I knew I'd need some assistance from the shop keeper.  Probably should find something suitable when the shops are quiet and have it ready for next year!  I added some apricot coloured ribbon that had a bit of a sparkle through it.  I also added Stickles - Star Dust to the hat and Kindy Glitz - Gold to the scarf and top of the ornament.
