Hello, Diane with you today.
This week our challenge is all about ornaments.
There are so many beautiful ornament dies to choose from,
trust me, I know as I own several
and what a hard choice to decide which one I wanted to use.

I ended up choosing this beautiful and intricate
Memory Box Corby Ornament.
It was cut from a cordinations green glitter paper.
I cut it a second time using red for the cardinal.

This ornament die has a separate back you can purchase
if interested, Memory Box Drop Ornament,
it fits perfectly for the back layer.
I used Pearlized Esse White Metallic paper for the ornament backing

The ornament was attached to  an Impression Obsession Pine Branch.
I added a Snow Marker to the branch,
as you can see, I got a little carried away with the snow!

The snowflake paper behind the ornament was cut using a die from
I know it is difficult to see in the photo,
but this was then embossed with Quilt Blocks by Darice

I added an embossed under panel on red card stock
and a pretty red bow to finish it off.

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Just beautiful Diane and I'm sure it is even more gorgeous IRL! How cool that you actually made the 'hanger' silver ... nice touch! And the sprig of pine with the snow and red ribbon ... perfect! You are so good at paying attention to the details! Awesome card my friend! Happy Thanksgiving to you & Greg!

I love this ornament die! So gorgeous and just my style. Boy do you ever have the dies! I really need to spend some time organizing so I can find what I have a little more easily. Got a system I'm working on. Sure takes time.
