Mission card #3 ???????

     YES, another Christmas card.  I'm trying to make some smaller cards now.  The other square ones cost a lot to mail and i don't want to pay an arm and a let to mail them.  I really do love square cards, but paying 20 cents more for each card when mailing so many gets very expensive.  I'm still in my "frugal" mode. My husband won't get his full pay until January, so i'm really trying to behave.
     My card today is another "ornament" card. I've been trying to decide what i'm going to do for my 3rd monthly "cardmaking" mission card at the church and i think that this may be it. I cut out the ornament using a cuttlebug die. I then embossed with a snowflake embossing folder the top part (red) of the ornament. I found this great tinsel at Michaels yesterday and decided to add a piece of it to the top to make it sparkle a little. Okay, I know it all sparkles. I found some half pearls in my stash and painted them with Tim Holtz acrylic paint and then added stickles.
