CFC #7 & GPBH Week 8

Happy Monday!

Like just about everyone, when I saw the ornament on the cover of the SU Holiday Catalog, I absolutely had to make one.  I decided to see if I could create it with my Spellbinders Ornament Dies.  But, I chose to begin with Halloween rather than Christmas!  

Today's ornament is for Crafty Friends Challenge #7, which is to create anything Halloween-themed, and for Week 8 of The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop.




As the Spellbinder Dies are different sizes than the Framelits, I used a 2 1/4 circle base.  Can you see the sparkle?  The entire ornament, including the tulle, was spritzed with Champagne Shimmer Mist.  Yesterday I ordered Halloween Baker's Twine, so, when that arrives, I will be adding it where the SU sample had (I think) Linen Thread.  Overall, I am quite pleased with it and will definitely make a Christmas version. 

Supplies used:  SU Ghostly Greetings DSP, Pumpkin Pie Button and Champagne Shimmer Mist, CTMH Pearl and Tulle, and Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments 2010 and 2011.

Edited to add:  I used the second smallest die from the 2010 Heirloom Ornaments and the third (middle) die from the 2011 Heirloom Ornaments.  The rosette was made with a 3/4 x 12 strip of DSP.
