"O" is for Ornament

      Another letter day at the 30 Days of Holidays at Beccy's Place and today is "O."  Beccy has some lovely ornament images and this is one that I have used each year since she released it.  I always get lovely comments on it, whether I've colored it myself or (as I did this year) have taken the shortcut of using the pre-colored image.

     I cut the Ornament with an Oval die, and used Onyx CS for the card base.  Aside from wanting an additional "O" for my card, the onyx makes the image pop from the background.  :-D   The ribbon is metallic, gold, wired ribbon from my stash and I have no idea what company made it.  I know I picked it up 2 years ago in the after-Christmas sales and I've made good use of it this year.  I used wide, gold twine for the hand-tied bow on the ornament.


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

I love a dark background NanaConnie, I agree that it makes the other colours pop, especially reds and greens. The gold ribbons you added look wonderful and add to the festive feel of your project. Beautiful!

I like dark backgrounds too and this shows up the decoration and the sparkle. It's so nice when you get a stamp or image that you keep coming back to. So glad you shared with us at Incy Wincy, come back soon. CarolG
