Oh Christmas Tree

Hi All.

As we are quickly approaching the Christmas period,
this months challenge at The Mirror Crack'd is 
Christmas Ornaments.

I created this ornament using recycled cereal boxes as the base.
I used some beautiful foil tape to layer up the backrgound,
then a pencil to engrave my lines, swirls and dashes.

I added Viva Inka Gold over the top, making sure to rub it into 
the crevices before wiping off the excess.

Then I just got a mix of materials and layered then on top.
There is a doily cut from scrapbook paper.

The flowers and leaves are all handmade.

Hiding in the arrangement are some rub-ons, chipboard, puffy glittered flourishes, rhinestones.

The holographic rays are also recycled, and I thought they added 
just a little bit more sparkle.

At present, I have this hanging in my office at work for a bit of festive cheer.

Now it's your turn.
Create a little something and link it to the challenge.
I am sure everyone will love this challenge.

Above all, have fun
and Happy Crafting.
