Christmas Fragments

Time for another Compendium of Curiosities challenge with Linda and this week our challenge is to use Fragment Charms, page 64 of the book for full details of the technique.
I purchased a couple of glass baubles some time ago and thought one of these would be a great starting point for my card.  They are not particularly heavy so are ideal for an embellishment and co-ordinated quite nicely with the Fragment Charms.
I have stamped the Christmas image with StazOn timber brown and DI fired brick and layered the image onto brown and red card stock.  The card is approx. 5" x 7" (sorry I still work in inches LOL).  I have added a Fragment Charm to my glass bauble, one to highlight PEACE and added one in the bottom corner and that makes another Christmas card off my list.  Have a great day, Tracy x x

Tracy, this is stunning! The glass ornament is gorgeous, and how thoughtful to send a card that contains a useable and beautiful decoration for the recipient's Christmas tree! It's perfect with your lovely fragment charms, and the paper you used couldn't be more wonderful!
