D is for Deck the Halls

Good morning everyone and thanks for visiting!
It's the 15th of the month and we have a new challenge for you over at ABC challenges. We're at letter D and our challenge is 

D is for Deck the Hall

We'd like to see your handmade holiday decorations, or use an image where someone is "decking the halls". Can't wait to see your creations! LOTV is our sponsor today, and who wouldn't want to win a LOTV prize??!!


Here's what I created using one of their super cute stamps, I think it's called "Woodland Christmas".

I decided to create a tree decoration using the Shape EZ Flip ornament downloadable cut file from Whimsy Stamps. I don't have an electronic cutter, so I printed out the pdf file and just freehand cut out the shape of the ornament.

Besides printing it on brushed gold card stock, I also printed it onto designer paper.
The image was colored  using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I added lots of glitter to the snowy hills. I just so much love this cute image with all those cute critters!
It's been embellished with a snowflake using one of the dies from the Layered Snowflakes Die set by Whimsy Stamps. Finished it off with some ribbon and a button with gold cord, and then added a few clear rhinestones. Please excuse my not so perfect cutting here, the gold card stock was a little bit heavy, so it wasn't very easy. Sometimes one of the electronic cutters would sure come in handy, but I don't think I would use one very much so I haven't gotten around buying one yet.

I am playing along in the following challenges:
Thanks again for visiting.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
