A Christmas Ornament

I really should be in the Christmas crafting mode...maybe Sassy Studio Designs' Ornament Challenge is just what I need to jump start my mojo!

If you read my blog (HELLO, is anyone out there???), you know that I have been playing along with SSD's Steam Punk Challenge - they have over 500 followers on PCP, ya know.  That was quite the challenge for me - you know I love my 'boy' immies and same old, same old....well SASSY is a reach for me.  I did finally 'get it' toward the end of the week!  And, the DT over there made me feel like I knew what I was

So, when they gave a shout out about their monthly Christmas challenge, I said sure....let's give it a try.  (No EK today, so had time to craft)  You still have about a week to enter - go take a look!

Oh, you want to see my submission....
Here it is. 

An ornament made from six punched circles.  I heat embossed with clear on the card stock before punching the circles out.  Sassy Bridesmaid was the immie I have that looked the most Christmas-y, so I colored her up and have her carrying poinsettias.  I added two iridescent beads and a length of ribbon to complete the project.
What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!
