Day 10 Ornament Oct 26

Welcome to day 10 of the blog hop. We have ornaments to show you today. I used Mark's Finest Paper's Cardinals in Winter for my ornament. If you would like to create this ornament, I did a tutorial that you can find here last year. These are so pretty, you can't just do one. You have to make them every year...lol The products used are as follows:
Martha Stewart - Corner punch from a Punch Around the Page set
Pearls, Stickles, Feathers, pipe cleaner for the halo, ribbon and a 1" Christmas Bulb

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to to check back as we still have a couple days left of projects for you.
