Upcycled Christmas Ornament

As I'm slowly working my way though my snippets and upcycled boxes, I came across these bits of card - perfect for a CAS Christmas ornament.

I die cut a stitched panel from white hammer card and attached it to the card blank.  I used gold holographic card from an old gift card to die cut the back of the ornament and the bow.  The floral ornament was die cut from a birthday card.  The ornament pieces were layered and attached to the card.  I snipped the lower part of the tail from the bow and attached it above the ornament.

To make this card I used:
     A2 white hammer card blank
     My Favourite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX  Die-namics', Memory Box 'Traditional Ornament' & 'Lydia Ornament' dies
     Upcycled birthday card and gift tag
     Snippet of white hammer card

I am entering the following challenges:

Beautifully done Kath and I love the way you have used the gold for the background and the bow, and then the upcycled floral for the ornate top layer of the bauble. A beautiful CAS look and wonderful upcycling. x
