A Christmas Ornament for Crafts and Me

Hi Hi Everyone...

Well I have some news... I am now a fully fledged Design Team Member of Crafts and Me!!! WHOOHOOOOO very cool:-)

This is my first time, posting with this Design Team, and you may be aware that there was a bunch of newbie Digi stamps that was released last week.... anyway I have used one by Sara Burrier, called The Blessing, which of course you can get your mitts on HERE.  I've also added on  the cool circle from the Christmas Embellishments Set which is available HERE....  

I was able to merge the two together on Photoshop which I must say I think I'm pretty clever in doing as my Computer skills????  I don't really have any!!! ... anyway once I got it printed I started colouring, and then the idea struck on how to display these gorgeous images....

It's a 6 x 6 Chippy shadow box that is by Twiddlybits!!  I picked it up at the paper craft show about a month ago that I went to in Melbourne. 

 I've painted it white and then once it had dried, I got out the Tim Holtz Picket Fence Crackle Paint and gave it a good going over with that... it looks really cool in real life... sorry if the pic's don't pick up all the details.  I've also added a few glittered up Magnolia and Marianne Designs die cuts and some flowers, a bit of seam binding in the corner with a Pearl Bling Buckle on top (I'm loving these buckles at the moment) although you can't really see it that well... My snow on the image has been created with some Ranger Liquid Pearls... awww so pretty!!

Anyway there is a new challenge happening at Crafts and Me and the theme is: Birthday's so please make sure you add your creation!!!! 

So there you go, I hope you love my little shadow box, I think it's going to look so lovely up on the wall or on a shelf in a couple of weeks when I dig out the rest of the Christmas Decorations... Gosh... it's getting close now isn't it!!!!

Here are some challenges I would love to enter:
