ruffled up red

Another Christmas ornament!
~ Ü ~

 This time in more traditional colours of red & gold. This one is going to another neighbour.

The gathered ribbon is sewn to form a circle for the base. The front has a snowflake-topped rosette sitting atop a frilly chipboard die cut, which been painted in gold, embossed and blinged with (liquid) pearls. I'm rather proud of the pretty red bow, with an extended length added as a hanger.

The other side has a gold lacey circle chipboard base on a gold-specked paper doiley. It is embellished with a layered flower, which is made from punches and moulded blooms, framed by a leafy vine which has been edged lightly in red & gold.
