Ornaments for Paper Cupcakes

Can you believe it is Monday again and December the 6th? Where does the time go?
I know I said last week that I was going to get back in the swing of things but unfortunately, my RA decided to flare and I have had my right arm isolated in a sling and was unable to use it for much of the last week. Finally on Friday I got my ornament done for this week's challenge at Paper Cupcakes which is hosted by our sweet Carol. She has asked us to create an ornament, simple, fancy or anything in between. I made mine using the digital image " A Taste of Winter"...not especially happy with the way it turned out but the best I could do at this point. I used SU Riding Hood Red card stock and SU dp Merry Moments cut with the scalloped rectangle Spellbinder dies. The image was cut with the next smaller size and mounted with pop dots inside the opening on the ornament. I colored this with my SU markers and highlighted with Ranger stickles. I hope you can join us this week and make your own ornament either for your tree or a gift. If you haven't already, please stop by and see what the rest of the team has created. Take care and have a wonderful week.
