Using Plaid for Merry Monday



Colleen is our hostess this week and she chose


I die cut this ornament from a bit of ribbon I bought to decorate a wreath.

I was amazed at how well the die cut the ribbon.

It has a bit of metallic gold thread running through it which made it 
difficult to photograph.

My camera doesn't like sparkle, glimmer or shine!

This also works for



I hope you'll join us at Merry Monday and get a jump
on that Christmas card stash.

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Finally had a chance to browse around the beautiful cards that have been posted here. Love your gorgeous ribbon plaid decorating this ornament. The texture is wonderful...so 'touchable'. Great design, and lovely card. Inspired idea to use your ribbon for the challenge too. Also love the pine boughs peeking out at the top. TFS

What a neat idea Bonnie. I thought for sure you had cut the diecut on the white and snuck ribbon behind it. So clever!
