Festive Friday #25

Happy Tuesday, friends.  The snow has stopped, the sun is shining and I have a Christmas card to show you.  It's for the Festive Friday challenge.


Isn't that a gorgeous bowl of red and white ornaments?  I was particularly enthralled with the swirled ones.


It took me a while but I finally figured out how to make one of my own.  I know that the top is usually where they come together but I don't know how I would have done that.  I hand cut the top from silver paper that I also used to cut the delicate chain die.  I knew I wanted something other than a plain background and that I would need a place for a sentiment so used the SSS curved edge die and popped up the panel embossed with chain link.  The sentiment from PTI is embossed in silver and the greens are from a MS punch.  I just may make a few more of these with different ornaments.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your comments so I'd love it if you'd leave one.
