Ornament Keepsake Decoration

I've had great fun today as I have been attempting to make the beautiful Christmas decoration from the front cover of the Holiday Mini (see side bar). I trawled YouTube for instructions - there are so many that I finally gave up and did my own thing! I don't have all the materials used either so I improvised - a lot!
Take a look

I used two ornament shapes plus the round centre piece along with Very Vanilla card stock, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler ink.
Here's a close up

I added a pearl to the centre - one of the large ones from the Basic Pearls pack, only £4.50 and you get loads!

Stamps: Ornament keepsakes
Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Card Stock: Very Vanilla
Accessories: Holiday Ornaments Framelit Dies, Basic Pearls.
(Don't for get if you buy the Ornament Keepsake bundle plus the Candlelight Christmas Speciality DSP you get a Paper-Piercing pack - FREE - check up top or the side bar for more details).

Crafting is curtailed over the weekend as my mum and dad are paying a visit but please do pop back tomorrow as it's the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and we have a fab new challenge for you - see you soon - Jacqueline xx
