Challenge Entry: Christmas Tree Ornament

I hope to make my own ornaments for our tree this year.  So here's an attempt, sort of a prototype if you may.  It also depicts a wreath, if it isn't too obvious.  Well, at least that was what I was trying to achieve. Hahaha. :))

This one's a bit big - around 6" for the outer scallop, the inner scallop is 3 3/4".  All the dies you see in this project were cut with my Cricut Expression using the cartridges Accent Essentials and Storybook.

We are yet to put out the tree, so I just stuck a hanger on the closet to take a photo of my hanging ornament.

Okay, okay, enough talk, here goes...

The inner scallop circle hangs off the bigger scallop, so it turns freely when you hang it. Both sides of the inner scallop is decorated with similar embellishment. :)

All paper used here is from Echo Park's Season's Greetings.  I LOVE ECHO PARK!!! :)

Nice, eh?  Leave me some love if you like it!
