ISS Blog Hop

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Not only is today Black Friday, but it is also the day for the InStyle Stamps monthly blog hop. Now, I don't know about you, but I absolutely hate going out to stores on Black Friday, too crowded for my comfort, so, I can't think of anything better than to sit back and enjoy what wonderful creations the DT has in store for you.

You should have arrived from Julie's blog, but if not, please head on over to the InStyle Stamps blog to start at the beginning.

Our theme this month was ornaments. I had a lot of different ornament ideas, but in the end decided to use my Memory Glass that I had sitting neglected for about 2 years now. To go along with the ornament, I also made an ornament shaped card.

I colored this beautiful angel, Kimi, with copics and then painted her wings with Angel Wings Shimmerz ~ now how appropriate is that. I also added it to the edge of the image panel, the edge of the sentiment panel and to the designer paper.& Then to make her sparkle more, I added stickles to the edges of her "dress".  The pearls were colored with RV11 to match and then some organdy ribbon was added to finish it off.  The ornament has a heavier silver wired ribbon for hanging.

Here is a close up of the card to capture the shimmer and sparkle:

And here is the ornament:

Your next stop is Mary and I know she will have some fabulous eye candy for you. AT the end of the hop, you should end up back at InStyle Stamps where we would like you to vote for your favorite project. The DT member that receives the most votes will win a prize AND just for voting you also have the chance to win a prize!
