Christmas Ornament Keepsake

This month I am thrilled to be a guest designer for Paper Cupcakes!  The first challenge for December is to create a Christmas ornament keepsake in the traditional colors of red and green.  I chose Nina's "Noel Bears" for my ornament, they are just so adorable!
and a larger image
I used a Spellbinder's die for my image, added a MS border and then adhered to a Magnolia Tilda Doily (this is one of the new Doohickey dies).  I added rhinestones and stickles, as well as decorative ribbon and lace.  My bears were colored with Copic markers.  

Thanks for visiting and be sure to visit the design team's blogs to see their gorgeous ornaments!
