Playing with ornaments

I've been playing with ornament shapes to cut with my Silhouette SD and today I have something to show...

I've used the snowflake cut out from the centre of the ornament in my background embellishment (layers of PTI aqua mist cardstock and wool felt cut with nestabilties labels 2, I think). This isn't a just happened as I tried to cover up the seam created when I embossed the background pink panel. I like 5.5" square cards (if you hadn't noticed) and my embossing folder just doesn't do it for me. My pink and blue colour scheme was inspired by this fabulous decorative ribbon. I used my Sizzix Giant Scallops Decorative Strip Die to cut the scallop border and hid the seam under the ribbon. "Happy Holidays" is from Sparkle & Cheer. A little bit of sponging with PTI raspberry fizz and antique linen distress ink...and some half pearls.

Thanks for looking!
