Ornament

Hi everyone! Here is my take on two challenges today. I really liked the photo inspiration over at Capture the Moment and decided to pair it with this weeks awesome sketch challenge over at FMS.

I mixed a few dies up to create this.

The ornament and bow hanger are from Memory Box. I used some turquoise and silver foiled cardstock from DCWV to cut both layers out.

The top of the ornament is a piece that really goes with a Christmas light bulb. I thought it needed a ornament top holder and decided to be a bit innovative and make one.

The silver like sequins are actually cut out using a berry die that went with a pine bough.

It was a little difficult taking a picture of this in order to get the shine to stand out on the metallic cardstock, so I did the best I could.

Sentiment is from the PTI botanical 3 set.

I hope you all in the States have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with family and friends. I am thankful for all you, who take the time out to comment on the cards that I have made throughout this year.
