Happy Friday everyone! It is indeed a happy Friday because my family and I are going to eat for *FREE* tonight at the new Taco Bell where I'll soon be working! YUMMAY!!! ;) But I know no one is here to read about THAT...so how 'bout a pretty picture instead?
I've been dying to use my *new* 2011 Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments to make an ornament! Here is the first of hopefully many! I had alot of fun making it, even though the whole process took a few days, starting and stopping! The paper is from the Recollections "Believe" 12x12 pad. You can see I also used my loved Spellbinders Poinsettia die set too, along with the MS fern? punch, and the Sizzix Scribbles Swirls die. The flower, leaves and ferns are all made from vellum that I inked with my TH Distress inks. For the swirls I wanted a different material, so I tried the DI for the first time on photo paper. Worked great! I am SO HAPPY with this ornament!!! :) Here's a close-up pic:
Anyhow, these are the challenges I am linking this to:
Jingle Belles: Old and New (my paper is old(ish), and the 2011 ornament die set, new)
Merry Monday #90: Ribbon or Twine
Holly Jolly: Ribbon or Lace
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra: Anything Christmas
Thanks for having a look today, and enjoy yourself, whatever you are doing! :)
ETA: I just checked out Hazel's other challenges (I don't know how she keeps up with so many!), and found that this will fit in nicely, so I'm adding them to the list also. Just found out this will also fit into the challenge for Christmas Cards All Year Round, so adding it there as well!
CHNC #158: Upcycle, repurpose, or use a freebie (I used some "chipboard" that I saved from some packaging as the base for my ornament.)
CHNPPC (Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge): Use patterened paper
