AWEsome!!! I messed around a bit last year with some 3 and 4 sided ornaments, trying to find an easy project to share with my grandchildren (ages 3 and 9). This one looks like it's easy enough for them to at least help with. Thanks so much for sharing! sab

I wish I was as religious in all areas of my life as I am in checking out your blog every single day. Your cards are the number one reason I love to craft. This ornament is so delicate and beautiful. I can't wait to get the fleur de lis pendant set. The only thing I would love to see is copic color #'s when you use them. Thanks for the inspiration.
