Gecko Galz Chirstmas Ornament & Etsy Sale

Hello Friends!!
I hope you are having a fabulous day!
It has been snowing here in Michigan, and my normal hour long drive home from work last night took me close to 2 hours the roads were so bad.  So, I am glad to be home and relaxed!
Today I would like to share with you an ornament I made using Gecko Galz new Collage sheets.
I used 2 images from the following images from the sheets.
I used the sweet girl in the red coat image to the left, and the fabby shabby blue wood frame in the upper left of the second sheet below.

I also used the snowman with children playing from the Gecko Galz
Frosty Collection....the one in the upper left of the first sheet.

and a  flower post card image from the Graphic Fairy.
I collaged all of my layers together using GIMP.  Which is a free program.  You can watch my tutorial on Youtube here for the basics.  Here is what my collaged image looks like a little bigger.
Here is a another look at my ornament.
I used Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue & Ultra fine Metal Tip and  Fuana Glitter from Art Glitter to outline my image.
I also used some mulberry leaves, and a bow made with my Bow it all tool and old gold organza from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Below you can see the Juliet Lace that wraps around the bulb.
Here is a look at the back.  You can see that I added some of the 1/4 inch natural crochet lace around the silver topper.
