Decorate A Christmas Ornament

Hi folks! I made a pretty matchbox ornament for this week's theme, and as I was finishing it, I thought I really wasn't following the prompt of using an ornament template so...  I made this one too.  It's cut from card stock with aluminum foil on top. I watercolored an old book page, added a little scrapbook paper, and used old postage stamps for the center design.  I also mod podged the whole thing and added a bit of glitter to look a bit more like an ornament.  If you'd like to see the the matchbox, pop over to my blog.  Just think -- next week at this time, it will be Christmas!  Yikes!
