Wishing you Peace...

Today is a suPREMEly busy day, but I really wanted
to share this little creation with you.

You know me...I LoVe glitter!
I have been pretty conservative with it this holiday season,
so I thought I would create something that although it
is *sparkly* it's still subtle.

Thought I would enter this for the
Here's what I used...
The ornament was created using my
Sizzix/BasicGrey die cut.  I topped it with a
beautiful acetate greeting from Little Yellow Bicycle.
Underneath, you find another acetate lovely in the
form of snowflakes, also from LYB.
The glitter comes in with the silver swirls which were
created with fun chunky glitter.
The ornament is adorned with silver micro-beads
& a huge rhinestone from Martha Stewart
vintage ribbon and soft pearl embellishments. 
All of the shading was done using Tim Holtz's
Distress Ink in 'Frayed Burlap'.

All right....I hope you enjoyed that little
glimpse into my projects for now.
Why so busy?  Well, the final designers
have been chosen for the newest team
at The Play Date Cafe, so there are 
eight acceptance emails and
110 'we're so sorry' messages to send.
I know that typically, just acceptance emails
are sent but it is my feeling that if you took the time 
to honor us with a submission, then the least
we can do is personally thank you.
I also have tomorrow night's project for
the PDCC to finish up!  I'm hosting this week's
challenge, so I can't be late!  haha
Hope you have a great night...thanks for stopping by!
