Tracey at Fred-she-said has begun to work on Christmas images and all I can say is WOW! There are some wonderful bird designs, including a robin for us Brits :), but the first one I reached for was the ornament. You'll see the fancy one with pine needles and holly berries in a while on another card from me, but first, here is the plain version!
I've printed off two and coloured them with Copics and loads of Stickles, to match the Basic Grey Jovial paper. After the Stickles had dried completely, I glued them together with some blue metallic thread between them and stuck my ornament into the aperture I made with my Nellie Snellen dies. I punched some leves from the greeny-blue card, added some flowers and a sentiment and there you have it - Christmas bling! The only time-consuming part was leaving the Stickles to dry overnight and you could choose to bling up your ornaments with glitter and gems instead... lots of possibilities.
