Magazine Ornament Challenge

So this is my Christmas ornament for the challenge. I had a blast making this one. I found this really cool ornament at Hobby Lobby, it's called a" photo ball ornament". It opens from the bottom so you can put a photo in it. So I decided to use the Snow Angles cartridge. So here we go

The little girl in the sleigh,  I have cut 3 different layers so there is a lot of dimension. The background is one of the snowflakes cut at 2.9 in on the cricut imagine (fits perfect in the ornament). I embellished the sleigh with glitter and the glossy liquid for even more dimension, added pearls  and gems. I also used white flocking for the collar on her coat. This is done on both sides of the ornament.
Detail is everything to me so I added a little snow in the ornament for extra fun. To finish the piece and keep with the rules of the challenge I took the velvet ribbon and embossed it with the cuttlebug and wrapped it around the seam of the ornament. I took these crystals off another ornament attached it to the ribbon and attached the top back on. Decorated the top of the ornament with crystals and found some fun Christmas hangers to hang it with, and added some shinny holly leaves I found in the Christmas section at the Hobby store.

The backgrounds are also from the Snow Angle cartridge and I  put a shimmer mist on all the pieces for that glittery holiday feeling.

This is just another ornament I made for fun (it's not for the challenge however). It is also from the Snow Angle cartridge. I flocked the birds and the top of the stocking and just embellished it with glitter glues. This also has 3 layers.

These next couple pictures are and ornament I made from the K@Company Brenda Walton paper ornament kit.I really enjoy this kit all you have to do is put them together and embellish them the way you like and you have a lovely Christmas ornament. I also put that fun Shimmer spray on this too.
