Cuddly Buddly - 2nd challenge using free digi papers

Cuddly Buddly have their second challenge up and running this week and they are giving away free digi papers for you to use.  They are quite pretty and as soon as I saw them I just wanted to use them to make this little Christmas tree decoration.  There's also a prize of £20 to spend in their online store for the winner.

I used a set of spellbinders nesties to cut the bauble shapes out using silver card for the base layer and two of the free CB papers in this pastel blue for the other layers.   It's hanging from a mug tree in the picture above as I need to get up into the loft to get at my mini Christmas tree!   It's just a bit too early to put the decorations up in the house I think, even for me - I do like to wait until it's actually December before I start !

I punched a large snowflake from white card using a Martha Stewart punch and added a flower made with a Nellie Snellen punch & emboss set to it before adding it to the front of the bauble.  The ornament is double sided and I added the same embellishments to the other side.  The blue gems are from my stash and I added a loop of white thread as a hanger before gluing both sides together

Thanks for dropping by, if you've left me a comment - thank you so much!  I love to get feedback from visitors, it's always great to find out what someone else thinks of your work.
