Peachy Keen Challenge 12

Hello everyone.
It's Peachy Keen Challenge day today and BOY! was it a challenge for me this time!
The challenge is.......Make an ornament.

You can use whatever materials you like, but you must include the following........
  • Something gold
  • A hanging device
  • A stamped image
Easy? Well it wasn't. Not for me 'coz I don't usually do 'objects'. It was definitely a challenge!
BUT!!! Saying that, now I've done it, my head is buzzing with all the possibilities now!

Here is what I finally came up with.........

As it's THAT time of year, I had to go with a Christmas ornament, didn't I!

I searched high and low for a template for a hanging ornament and finally found something suitable on You Tube. Here.

I used a past SU Christmas DP for the star.
Gold Mirri card for the Nestie scalloped circle.
The cute snowman is of course from Peachy Keen. He's PK-311, 'Snowmany Thanks' set. (I LOVE the PK Christmas stamps.)
Coloured as usual with Copics. (I can't seem to tear myself away from them or Promarkers).
(I used gold cord stuck on the back of the star with a glue dot).

We'd love you to play along with us on the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog.
You can play along with any of our sketches anytime, but to be in with a chance of winning the fantastic prize, please upload your entry before midnight 4th October. (CST, US). Approx. 6am 5th October for us 'over here'.
(You don't even have to use Peachy Keen stamps), but it'll be nice if you do.
 Pop on over and see the other DT member's fabulous projects.  You won't be disappointed!

Take care and have a great day. (I shall be watching for your entries). ;0)

Love this ornament! Such a cute idea. I have to come up with something other than a card for a project, and I may try something like this. And thank you for your recent comments on my blog!
