Happy Friday! I don't know why, but simple cards take me hours to make! This started when I was cutting cardstock in a Mover and Shaper Die....to bad it was not mine........anyway, I looked at the shape that was cut out and decided it looked like an ornament......... I stamped and embossed a snowflake from SU Snow Swirled, added a silver Eyelet and a gingham ribbon 'hanger'. I can imagine all kinds of ornaments made from the shapes I cut out from the Matchbox Die shapes too. (And, I am sure some creative SU demo thought of this AGES ago!). Background DP is Cottage Wall and Merry Moments both from SU. The Sentiment is stamped on a tag from the Matchbox Die.
I made this for dual challenges today- to have an eyelet for the Bloggers challenge for Sweet Dreamers (SCS) AND fit the sketch challenge for the Bloggers Challenge group.

Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend.
