Swirly Christmas Ornament - Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird - Fab Friday 99

  How lucky are we that it's another Fab Friday challenge week?  Such a versatile sketch this week.  I can't wait to see what every one decides to use for the star element.  I decided to go with another shape but I will probably end up making several more cards with this sketch and will have to try a star!

 And my interpretation of the sketch.....which isn't really interpreted at all since its exactly like the sketch!

 And if you thought that you've done all you could do with the Swirly Bird set and Swirly Scribbles thinlets well they work for Christmas too!  How fun is that ornament!?

  I had a hard time photographing this card to get the colors true to life as well as show off the gold accents.  The card base is Dapper Denim but comes across as more like Night of Navy.  The lighter blue is Soft Sky for the ornament but I goofed and didn't realize it until everything was adhered and finished....I used Pool Party cardstock for the layer under the Cable Knit embossed panel.  I'll just claim it as a "design decision"!

  I hope you'll be able to join us this go around!  We'd love to see your creation using our sketch.  Check out the rest of the Design Team projects at the Fab Friday blog.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
