all ruffled up

It's all ruffled up at Our Creative Corner, and so is my ornament
~ Ü ~

I do not celebrate Christmas, but it's still fun to make ornaments. 
This will go to my lovely neighbours. 

I've used a length of gathered ribbon and sewed it into a circle. Added a rossette, edged it in gold, and topped it with a snowflake. It would have been nice if I had a slightly larger one, but that's all I have so . . .

On the other side, I have used a lacy circle chipboard as a centre. It is painted gold, and speckled with white paint. On top, it is embellished with a leafy branch, punched flowers and moulded flowers.

When it catches the light, you'll get sparkle on the snowflake and from the metallic thread & trim on the ribbon.
