When I saw the sketch over at 52CCT this week
I wondered just how I could adapt it.

So I sat down and had a wander through my dies
and then one of those WOT IF ideas hit me.
This is what I came up with.

These are from SB Add on Ornaments and they have cut out beautifully in glitter paper.
I have raised these with 1mm foam and was grateful for the 
practice I had on the tree in my last post because
this was even more difficult.
I hung them with gold chain stickers/ peel offs
and the sentiment stamp was coloured with a Tombow.
It is a better match to the red than it looks.
The whole was then put onto white textured card with 2mm foam.
I am really happy with the end result which is praise indeed from me
as I am rarely satisfied with my cards and give them
a Could do Better. 
How often did I get that on my school report?

Am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.
