Edwardian Themed Christmas Ornaments

The ladies from my Parfumerie Collage Sheets are on display in these Edwardian Themed Christmas ornaments.  I love the non-traditional soft pastel colors from the Cherish 6x6 paper pad that I chose for these ornaments.  
The base comes from a set of layered chipboard ornaments.
The white poinsettias are from the Season’s Greetings Vintage Dazzlers (layered glitter stickers).  The cream resin sparrow is colored gold using Gilder’s Paste.
Alpha Stamps supplies used for the ornament pictured above:
The sparkle on the snowflakes (cut out of the Cherish papers using a snowflake punch) and the leaves comes from Diamond Stickles.  To give the snowflakes more support I glued together 3 layers.

I thought the pleated ribbon was a perfect accent to the round ornament.  Just as in the “Baby It’s Cold Outside” doorbook, I added sparkle to the chipboard snowflakes with Diamond Dust.
Alpha Stamps supplies used for the ornament pictured above:
I attached the smaller punch out star to the larger star using a chain and added a Fancy Chipboard Star Cut-out for more detail.
