Christmas ornament

Hi friends!
Sorry it has been so long since I've posted anything.
My daughter is in the school play so between that and errands I have to run for my husband so that I can have the car to pick her up after every nights practices, 
not to mention the usual house cleaning duties, 
I have no time on my hands for much of anything else.

Just took the towels out of the washer that I washed three days ago 
and then again last night,
 now I am going to create!
I don't know what I am going to create but I am not leaving my scrappy place until I have a few things done!

Ok, that's all the time I have allotted for a rant, now on to a prettier subject...

A few days ago,
(I don't remember exactly when)
I made this ornament...

I used Gecko Galz new Vanity Fair Papers
out this month, 
for the background.
Added a little Fired Brick distress ink to all the edges.

I cut the shape of the ornament with my Cameo.

The images I used on front and back all came from October's 
Old Fashioned Christmas Collage sheet,
 also from Gecko Galz.

On the front...

I pop dotted the little girl image.

The wheat spray is from Pro31 Designs,
I twirled the end tails of it for a little bit more sparkle on the bottom.

The little piece of trim across the center of the ornament is a piece of vintage trim I got, 
in a jar full of vintage trim,
 from the Antique Mall on a shopping trip I took with my daughter about a month ago.

And I added some platinum stickles to the top of the ornament, front and back.
Actually after taking the picture I added more so it really sparkles now! 
Should have taken a new pic...sorry :(

On the back...

The train image was pop dotted. 

The poinsettia is from I am roses,
The three pearl drops are from Pro31 Design,
I added Bisque Liquid Pearls all around the outside edges.

This is a lovely ornament, and I love that you decorated the back as well as the front. The inking round the edge gives a lovely finish to your work.
