I have made my first Christmas ornament of the season using some of the new November dies!  Just click on the links in the materials list for more information.
I have used the small and medium bow die at the top of the ornament and then I colored the back of the bows with Copic R29. Next, I added gold glitter glue around the edges. I stamped the poinsettia three times using embossing powder and colored using Copic markers. I cut out three different sizes and stacked the layers on top of a circle die cut after I added the greens. 
I used the banner dies to create the bottom of the ornament and added some embellishments. I added glittler glue to the edge of the wood ornament base which I painted gold and then added four pieces of bling around the edge.  The finished ornament is 6 3/4 inches tall from bow to bead and 4 inches wide.

I can't wait to see what you make and share with us!!!!
