Baubles For The Tree ------------say the Winter Wonderland Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog and hope that it is warmer with you than it is here at the moment
Today brings a new challenge at 


The snow and huge amounts of ice would lead me into saying how fabulous the entries into last weeks Penguins and Polar Bears challenge were, really enjoyed the hopping about :)

This week our very talented Janet is hosting the challenge and she has chosen the theme of

BAUBLES FOR THE TREE

and we are sponsored by 
As I had already made a bauble a couple of challenges ago, I decided to use a bauble image and here is what I came up with.
I started with a Whichcraft template that I got from the Doncaster Dome show, I added panels of gold mirror card and on top of this some more of those delish Silent Night Xmas Papers by Papermania.  I added the Henry with ~Bauble image and also a few swirls adding pink pearls from the Hobby House.  On the front I added a really deep ribbon and matched this with a pull string tiny ribbon to create a big bow.  I added a sprig Xmas which I got from Hobby Craft.  The sentiments are from a vellum pack I got from Tilly's, I believe.

Here are a few close ups

Isn't the ribbon lovely and you can just see the green added to the swirl for the leaves and those gorgeous pink pearls.
and here is Henry he has liquid appliqué on his hat and his mistletoe berries.  Gold gel pen is used on the top of the bauble and a clear Atyou glitter pen on the glass bit of the bauble.  I coloured him with copics.

I am entering this creation into the following challenges
