Week #33 "Show some Sparkle" at Sugar Creek Hollow

Happy Saturday Friends!!
It is week 33 at Sugar Creek Hollow and we would like you to "Show some Sparkle" on your Vintage or Shabby chic creations this week!
I thought I would use the Grandma's House Digital paper pack for my background and snowflake.  I used both GIMP and Inkscape to create the snowflake and snowflake offset.  I created the shapes and then flipped them so the back of my ornament looks as fabulous as my front.  Cut lines were made in Inkscape so that pieces could be cut out with my Black Cat Cougar.
The image in the center is part of the Gecko Galz Happy Holiday's Jewel it Collection.  I used hot glue to adhere the brown Blingy Bling mesh pieces and ivory mulberry rose from Pro 31 Designs.  I used white box pleated ribbon (to create the buds beside the ivory rose), the burgundy leaves and yellow pom poms from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used the Champagne sheer ribbon from RRR to add a beautiful bow to the top of my ornament (you can see it below).
I used an antique brass flower bead as well as some ivory glass colored seed beads to add some more sparkle to my ornament.  They really dress up my jewelry wire hanger.
 Here is the back.  I used the "Christmas Greeting" image from Gecko Galz, added another ivory mulberry rose, brown blingy bling mesh, burgundy leaves  and some brown sugar baker's twine (also from RRR) and a antique button.
I hope you are inspired to create a Vintage or Shabby Chic style project with some "Sparkle" and link up with us at Sugar Creek Hollow this week!
I will be sharing with 
Enjoy your weekend!
