Ornamental

While on our weekly Saturday-morning trip to Michaels I picked up a flyer for a month-long contest they're having via FaceBook: Craft Some Holiday Magic. So naturally I spent the rest of the day using my new dollar stamps to make this little magic picture card. At 3x4 inches, it would actually make a cute ornament itself. And it holds well enough that the card doesn't slide out.

Check out the Michaels challenge...even if you don't enter, the projects are amazing!

This week's challenge is ornament, ribbon, beads, so I broke out my old stash of plastic beads and tried my hand at some beadwork. I hand-colored the stamps for the stationary elements of the card and used a bright blue ink for the "floating" trees. I'm proud to say that all of these materials were purchased at my (or my mom's) local Michaels.
