2s4y ornaments

i'm so excited that 2 sketches 4 you are having another challenge to pick some design team members! i know it's a long shot, but i definately still wanted to try out! here's the sketch for this weeks challenge:

there are so many things you can do with that sketch! i decided to flip the sketch on it's side and go the way of christmas (of course...) and i made ornaments! the large circle is a cut out on the front of the card. i covered a piece of cardstock with ribbon and then had it show from behind...i also used some foam dots to 'de-dimensional-ize' (hmm, not sure what the correct term is!) the ornament! then i used twine to dangle the ornaments.

i like that i used different shapes and styles of white buttons to represent other ornaments, too - adding some whimsy perhaps? :) the bow on the ribbon ornament was embossed with white and then popped up. and the sentiment was also embossed. both the bow and the sentiment are lawn fawn stamps (bows & holly and cozy christmas respectively)!

well that's it! thanks again!!!
