Tree Decoration

This is a tree decoration I have made for my Mother-in-law. I have made this in her colour scheme. I  have a MDF bauble and covered it with turquoise paper. I added tiny pom poms around the edge of the bauble and then attached the pearls on a string  around the edge of the front and back. I die cut the sentiment using a Dovecraft die in white card and attached that to my bauble. I die cut the poinsettia using a Tattered Lace die in white card. I shaped the layers and attached two layers together then added a pearl embellishment. I made three of the poinsettia and added them to my bauble. I then die cut the star spray using a Sue Wilson die in turquoise card and cut it into sections before adding it to my bauble between the poinsettia. I completed my bauble by adding organza ribbon to hang it from the tree. 

I would like to enter my creation into the following challenges:

  7. Hi Beckie! That pom pom trim is SO super cute. I believe ribbons and trims are the essential element to every card. It adds so much texture and personality to your sweet project. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us. Today started our Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and one lucky person will win this month's beautiful Ribbon Club Assortment. I hope you will come by and hop with us. Thanks SO much for sharing your talents with us.
