Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 36 - Silver/and or Gold

Hello everyone I hope you are all well,
I would like to say thanks again to the DT Team at Cheery Lynn for picking me in the Top 4 Weekly Spotlight for my Challenge entry no 35 Christmas in July
I decided to stick with the Christmas theme for this weeks  Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 36 Silver/and or Gold.

I picked up this paper mache cone which can be used either way to make a Christmas tree then I was looking on Pinterest ( it's very addictive) and found a different idea. I didn't really know what to call them but most of the ladies that have made them say they are called Tussie Mussie. 

I have covered mine in some gold and white Christmas fabric and then decorated it with ribbon and Cheery Lynn Dies. 
The dies that I have used are Christmas Ball DL 150, Holly Flourish B 148, Anastasia Border B 136 and Build A Flower Clematis B 181.
 This is a view from side on you can see that I have used the Anastasia Border around the top of the cone,
And a close up of the Holly Flourish and  Christmas Ball 
I used a left of poinsettia from last weeks project and the middle of another one the stamens to sit on the gold bow.
Head on over to Scrappy-Go-Lucky for all your Cheery Lynn Dies and so much more.
Until next time
