Fancy Sunbonnet Christmas Ornament

Hi everyone :-D

Today I want to share with you Fancy Sunbonnet Christmas Ornament I made last week. I didn´t want to share it before, because it was a birthday present for a friend and I wanted it to be a surprise. She liked it a lot. :-D

I used a beautiful Bugaboo Digi 'Fancy sunbonnet winter 2'.
Image is paper pieced. It has two layers.
I printed one image on Bebunni Christmas designer paper and the other image on white paper, colored and fussy cut it, colored edges with black fine liner and glued it over image printed on patterned paper. I added pearl marker to accent snowball. Mittens, scarf, pocket, belt and under skirt are colored with silver sparkling pen.
I cut out one more circle from the same patterned paper I used for the image´s background and glued it to the back of the image.

I placed image in the center of a clear acrylic ornament and added some hot glue on few spots, to prevent image moving inside the ornament. I embellished ornament with satin flowers, decorative flower stamens, synthetic snowballs and pearl maker. At the end I added nylon thread.
