Joy Tree Ornament ~In Happy Jewel Tones

Tree-Ornament2

Hello friends!  Just a quick post today to share another project I made with the Oct. release from Our Daily Bread designs, Joy Tree.  I decided that I'd make a Christmas Ornament with it.  I used the general directions I found on SCS but had to change the dimensions to accomodate the larger size of the stamp.  I used a Big & Juicy Rainbow Stamp pad to stamp the image in so that gave me the spectrum of colors. 
Tree-Orn-2-side
The ornament itself is constructed from Real Red and I stamped on SU! White.  I added a little bling and the rainbow sheer ribbon and all in all it was a simple project!  This could hold treats on the tree or other goodies, as it folds into itself securely.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
365 Cards - a daily challenge - Framed (by Something Other than a Circle/Oval or Square/Rectangle shape), Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes (plus Ribbons), Crafty Cardmakers C15 - Anything Goes, Critter Sketch - Anything Goes, Hooked on Crafts - Anything BUT a Card, Make it Monday - always Anything Goes,  Pile It On - Do it for Fun, Sparkles Forum -  Something That Sparkles(the bling),The Ribbon Girls -  Must use ribbon - ( Christmas), Creatalicious Challenges - Anything goes, My Grafico -  Always anything goes,  Sparkles Forum Christmas - M, Christmas, P1 - Christmas Songs, 2 Sisters - #59 Fancy Folds, Stamp, Scrap and Doodle -   Anything but a card,Craft 4 Eternity - Anything Goes, nspire me Fridays - Anything Goes, Sew Many Cards - Anything Goes, 4 Crafty Chicks - Anything Goes, Southern Girls - Anything Goes, Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes, Scrapalicious Challenge - Anything Goes, Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes, Whimsical Wednesday - Anything Goes, Celebrate the Occasion - Any Occasion + Ribbon, Heart Song Inspirations - Use a ribbon or a tag

What a gorgeous ornament, Grace! I love the jewel tones and uplifting holiday sentiments! Wonderful idea to use the Spectrum pad! Hugs!

Wow! This is just lovely! I agree with Carla. Using the spectrum stamp pad was brilliant (and a lot less work :o) )! It is just so bright and cheery, too! Thank you for joining us at Hooked on Craft Challenges. I hope you will return often!
