Christmas Cross Wise Men Still Seek Him Ornament

Good Morning Ladies,
I have a full weekend of cleaning house. But no one can clean for that many I will be creating in between. Sounds like a good idea to me.
I have created a Christmas Cross Wise Men Still Seek Him Ornament for my sister Debbie. She has been very encouraging to me in my art this Christmas creating season. So I wanted to give her a piece of my work. She ask that it not be too busy. I hope I have achieved this.
Here it is.....
 This ornament started it's life as a blank cross paper mache' ornament. It was painted with white acrylic paint first. After it dried it was painted with gold metallic acrylic paint. A piece of vellum was embossed with the words "wise men still seek him". This piece was die-cut with a spellbinders die using the cuttle bug. The poinsettias were created using a Heartfelt Creations stamp set, gold embossing  powder, and liquid pearls in bisque. They were attached with pop-dots. The angel is a flat back.The drop crystal is a partial ornament from hobby lobby. I used just the lower part of the ornament and added gold to drop it from the cross. I pierced a hole in the bottom of the ornament. Beacon 3 in 1 glue was added to the wire and poked up through the cross.
The other side of the ornament. It feels simple enough to me.
I have another sister that supports me in my work in many ways. I will create something special for her also.
Well off to create....
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
