Stained Glass Ornament

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Where has this year gone? One day, I think I have plenty of time to start Christmas cards, Christmas shopping, Christmas decorating...then I wake up and OMG! It's November and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Don't you just love deadlines? Especially that whooshing sound they make as they fly by? too. NOT! 
At least I have a few Christmas cards under my belt and this is another. I thought it might look nice to die cut a circle, leave the die in place, add some swaths of color w/ my Copics, then stamp the stained glass oval on top. I like that it was looking like an ornament (that was the plan), so I drew around the inside of the die w/ a fine tip marker then took the die off. I added a die cut open flower type element, a die cut red circle and a fussy cut poinsettia ribbon slide image on top. I also added a die cut ornament top and bow to complete the ornament.  For the white bg, I die cut the fading dot border and added a strip of red behind it. The first half of the greeting on the bottom and a couple of red stars.

The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used (only 6, lol).
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Julie, this is SO awesome!! I love how you colored the stained glass, not to mention how the poinsettia ribbon slide finishes off the inside of the die cut flower, which all makes an ornament - it's terrific!
