Ornamental Christmas

Hello everyone!  Hope all is well.  I'm trying to get a head start on
some of my Christmas cards so I'm not panicking at the last
minute like I usually am!!

This sweet digi is from Saturated Canary and she is called Christmas Angel.
I colored her over a year ago when I was first learning to use my Copics.
 My coloring has improved since then and I can see all my mistakes.  Hehe.
But oh well, don't wanna waste her!!  Yes, I could print her out
again and start all over, but I like seeing my progress.  Plus I still
think she's hella cute!!

The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps and can be found here.
I just love their sentiments.
The ribbon is seam binding that I colored ombre with my Copics.
I used RV91, 95, 99.  I think it turned out pretty nice.
The oval is Spellbinders floral ovals.

The poinsettias diecuts are from Marianne creatables.
The pine branches are Cheery Lynn.
They are all finished off with lots and lots of sparkly stickles!!
The pink stem that looks like it is covered in ice I bought from
my local Michaels.  This thing is gorgeous and it comes in
multiple colors!!

I don't have any ornament shaped die cuts so I decided to make my own.
This is just like we all used to do before the land of electronic cutters
and die cuts existed!!  LOL!!

A close up view of the silver topper on the ornament.  I drew in some lines
with my embossing tool to give it some depth.

Hope I can stay on course and continue to plug away at my Xmas 

I will be entering the following challenges:
