Wrapped Up Tilda Holiday Challenge

I made this cute ornament for the Wrapped Up Tilda Holiday Challenge.  The contest is now closed and I barely made it in time.  Silly me, I've been down with a major fibromyalgia flare so I haven't been doing much of anything, really, so it was a miracle that I was able to finish this project on time!

I bought both the Wrapped Tilda and Unwrapped Tilda at the Magnolia-licious store where Diana has these two stamps sold together for one low price of &8.99.  

The ornament was stamped with Waltzingmouse Stamp set Vintage Ornmanet.  Here's a close-up for this Tilda.

I used Sulkey thread and adhered it in between two circles to make a suspension ornament.  The inner circle can turn on it's own.  (sorry that the picture is so blurry)

This is the other side of the ornament.  

Blow is a close-up of the Tilda image.

I used Spellbinders layered poinsettia dies for the poinsettias on each side of the ornament and a Martha Stewart punch for the white leaves.

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate each visit and comment!

Nancy, beautiful ornaments. I love the design, how the images hang freely in the middle. I may try that for next year--thanks for the inspiration. And looks like the mini Tilda's are the perfect fit for these ornaments. Wonderfully coloured. TSF.
