Day 17 - "O"

Okay, so perhaps these are more bauble than ornament, but I'm thinking an ornamental bauble also fits the brief... right? Right. The little bit of sparkle you can see is from my trusty Wink of Stella brush.

Hi Beccy this is a stunning card. I love it. Who doesn't need a touch of sparkle. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Actually I have heard some people refer to them as ornaments and others as baubles - depends who you ask. So, ornaments they are! I like that they are hanging at different levels and that wonderful embossing behind them.

What an imaginative way of showing depth of the image: a bauble outside the frame! Lovely! And the white pattern is so beautiful.
Quite an inspiration here!

Yes an ornament babble fits - in the USA we just use the word ornament - Great embossing in the background - love the frame and the hanging ornament babbles - lovely card Beccy!

I call everything that goes on a Christmas tree an ornament. Is that something only in the United States? I love your combination of colors, especially the black ornament. I must get some Wink of Stella. Maybe Santa will bring it.

I do love the sparkle on your baubles, Beccy. And the embossed background is so pretty. I still have so many Christmas cards to make and so little time to make them, I think I may need to spend part of my store credit on this stamp set and use the precoloured images from the set and my sparkle pen to whip up some quick cards. If I'm really quick, I might be able to finish them in time to enter them when we get to the S for Sparkle lol.

When I saw it was Day 17 for "O", I could only think Oh my gosh, I haven't finished my Thanksgiving card!

Jennifer said...

Love everything about your card, Beccy, especially the 'classy' layered window and the over-the-edge technique.

Hugs,
Jennifer. x

You have used a gorgeous embossing folder. And those baubles/ornaments look so real, tributed to Wink of Stella.

Beccy this is a very elegant card with the lovely embossing, the strings dangling from behind the aperture and popping up on foam dots.

Well done on getting your sparkle so well photographed too :)

Great card Beccy and the sparkle adds such an elegant touch to your card...TFS I had to put myself out of all of your challenges at this moment I landed myself in the hospital I'm sad that I can't craft from the hospital bed...I'm still here and missing all the fun....have fun my crafty friends.

Beautiful and elegant card. With us, baubles are classified as Christmas decorations. We also hang chains handmade of colored paper. When the children were small, every year they decorated the Christmas tree in a selected color and made decorations in that color. We only bought baubles, we made other decorations together. There were chains, hanging Christmas trees, candies, etc.

I am curious what the difference is between baubles and ornaments. We would definitely calls these ornaments where we live. Almost anything that hangs on our Christmas tree would be called an ornament. I love the elegance of this card. The textured background really accentuates the beautiful ornaments you've used. The gold frame adds to the elegance. Such a gorgeous card!

NanaConnie said...

Yep, those are ornaments in my book. I never heard them called anything else until I was in college and my roommate called them baubles, but then, she was from England so I assumed it was a term from her home. I love the red and black combo!
