Come to Bethlehem and see...Christ whose birth the angels sing; Come, adore on bended knee...Christ the Lord, the newborn King...

Happy Thursday, y'all! I hope your week is going great. Mine is! I had a quick second to post, so I thought I'd share an ornament I made last week when I had the company of a precious 8 year old little girl and we did some playing. I didn't snap a picture of her ornament, but here's one of the one I made.



Yep, it's simple, but I like it. I used a 3" round coaster from my stash and paper from The Girls Paperie Tinsel & Twig Collection. After adding some bling from Zva Creative, I cut some kraft cardstock with my Vintage Oval Die from Verve. I stamped the Vintage Oval Frame in Old Olive ink, then added a snowflake and the word "Joy" from Papertrey's Snowflake Serenade in Crumb Cake ink. Then I overstamped the word in Early Espresso so it looks like a drop shadow. Love the way this looks on Kraft cardstock! I colored a few Swarovski Crystals with a red Copic marker, then adhered them to the snowflake before popping up the Kraft piece onto my ornament above the bling. The finishing touch was some wrinkled seam binding dyed with glimmer mist and aged with ink.

I hope you like it...and hope you're all doing well. Talk to you soon!
