My Sheri CRAFTS - Challenge #74 Ornament or Home Decor

Challenge #74 is Ornament or Home Decor - we would love for you to create an ornament or something festive for your home. I know we don't all celebrate Christmas so I would love to see some projects that reflect your beliefs. I decided to go with a home decor item and I think it just might make it's way to my office. All products are CTMH and once again I used my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I used the My Creations Banner which comes with 8 white chipboard pennants and 7 jump rings to hook them together. Since I only used three I can make another banner that says PEACE. Can you say score!! I covered the banners with B&T paper and then used the scallop shape on page 66. I cut each letter at 4" four times and glued them together to add some dimension. I did play around with using a snowflake as the letter O, but went with the letter this time.
Everything is sponged with Cocoa ink. I popped up the letters with some foam squares and added some bling from my stash. I used two kinds of ribbon to give it extra bam and added some mini red bling to the brads. Hope you enjoy. Make sure you stop back in a week to see what I've created next. I bought a pink "Charlie Brown" tree at Hobby Lobby and am planning to make it a breast cancer pink ribbon tree!
