Before you get on to voting here's my Day 24 creation :0)

Amethyst Snowflakes

The snowflakes are from the Stackable Tiles Christmas stamp set by Blockheads Paper Arts.
Stamped on the white standard sized domino with Jet Black StazOn and coloured with the following Sharpie markers in my signature 'The Sharpie Domino Queen' technique:  Ocean Blue, Sky Blue, Purple, Violet and Plum.  Metallic details added with a Silver Sharpie marker.  The sides of the domino are coloured with Violet DecoColor paint marker.  The back of the domino is covered with a piece of white cardstock embossed using an embossing folder by Cuttlebug, then coloured with Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks and adhered to the back with a coat of Judikins Diamond Glaze

The entire domino, front and back, was spritzed with Vanilla Smooch Spritz for lots of yummy sparkle (which you can see in the photo above).  Two metallic silver snowflake stickers by Stampendous were added to the centers of the stamped snowflakes.  The domino edges were wrapped with 1/4" ice blue/silver ribbon and adhered with red liner double sided tape.  Two silver jump rings were added to the top and bottom edges while adding the ribbon.  The silver snowflake charm was attached to the jump ring first so that the ring join could be hidden under the ribbon.  I added a purple Stampendous jewel sticker to the snowflake charm's center on the front and the back and embellished the ornament with a bow then added the silver swirl hanging hook.  

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my finale ornament and now it's time to vote!  The inlinkz collection is below. Good luck to my Merry Players :0)
