Making a Beautiful ornament out of..........


Happy Wednesday!!

Today I thought I would share a handmade Christmas ornament with all of you.
I ended up making this purly by just playing around and the end result turned out to be something I fell in love with....


It truly is amazing what you can do with a tiny bit of of cheap plastic ornaments to help inspire you.

The gold snowflake that I used here was one of those big plastic ornaments coated with gold glitter.  By itself it really isn't a very pretty item...  No wonder there were so many of them left over after Christmas last year. So when I bought it on clearence it was VERY VERY inexpensive... ha ha.....


Here is what I did with it.


I thought that the perfect stamp to use on this pretty ornament would be one of the new Belles 'n Whistles Christmas stamps, this one is called "Angels Song".
Isn't he darling???

The sentiment that I used is a digital word art sentiment.  You can find these Digital Word Art Digi sets only at Belles 'n Whistles



 
What fun, right?  They also have 2 sets available that are not Christmas related, but can be used for other cards and projects.

Anyway, I guess this is enough babbling from me for today....  I thought I would enter my ornaments into these challenges.
