Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge Entry--Ornament with Glitter

Four more days, my friends!  I am happily getting ready for Christmas and just about finished.  Except for the wrapping, lol.  That is the one part I always dread.  Did I get the same amount of gifts for each child?  What did I do with that one present?  How did I end up with three of these???  Yep--those and other questions always develop at some point during the "Wrapping Procedure."  Let's just say the word of the day is "wrapping."  Cool.  Now let's move on.  ;)


So, I finally finished my ornament for the Circle weekly challenge.  I used three different snowflakes from the Winter Lace Cartridge.  I kind of made this one up as I went along, but I really do like it!  I like my glitter in moderation, lol, so used my stickles to add bits of glitter and even cut a glitter paper for the first time in my E2!  Worked well--except for the wonky circles of course.  The top snowflake is two tone light blue, the middle is white, and the lower one is on a silver metallic paper that I love.  I used glue dots to hold the papers together on the top snowflake for strength.  I used my trusty Liquid Glass from CTMH to keep the other two together as they are 3D cuts.  Also used that to run the thread down the sides to connect them all!  Love that stuff!  I hope you like it!
 Here are the close-ups of each snowflake:


Tomorrow is my Second Munchkin's 10th birthday.  She is such a huge blessing to our family and is a lover of everyone.  Smooches to you P!  Keep on shining your light!
