Sleigh Bells Ring

I don't usually make Christmas things this early, but it's been dreary today so I thought I'd brighten the day with an ornament. 
My original thought was to make a shaker 'bauble', but then I figured why not make a few and create something more like a mobile. I chose two images from KennyK Stamps 'Sleigh' and 'Happy Holidays'. (I removed the bauble hanger part of the image so it would just be round).
After printing the images I die cut and coloured them.
I then die cut snowfall acetate plus coloured card to create the other baubles. I don't have a magnetic platform so I just use masking tape to hold the dies.
I added some thicker card to the back of the sleigh image to give it strength then glued twine around the edge. 
To create the shakers, I stuck the acetate behind the 'windows' then added a strip of 3D foam tape to keep the confetti in. I then stuck this to the background card shapes.
I finished off my ornament by adding twine to hang the baubles plus some small bells. I also decorated the baubles with gold Sharpie.

The Promarkers I used were: Cool Greys 1, 2 & 5, Black, Coo Aqua, Arctic Blue, Sky Blue, Cobalt, True Blue, Indigo, Mint Green, Tea Green, Apple, Forest Green, Pine, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow, Mustard, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Caramel, Sandstone, Umber, Henna, Burnt Orange, Soft Peach, Peach, Blush, Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Dusky Pink, Rose Pink, Pink Carnation, Cerise, Mulberry, Aubergine, Plum & Amethyst.
