A CASED Dynamic Duo

After being inspired by a friend to try it, I made my own version of the ornament that is featured on the front of the holiday mini catalog.  (Thanks, Nancy!)

I didn't own all the materials that Stampin' Up used to make this ornament, but I made a quick trip to a fabric store and found this really cool fabric.  It is tulle like, it's cherry cobbler like, and it has some cool sparkly things on it.

I made this thinking of the Dynamic Duo's weekly color challenge.  This week, we were given the challenge of using Cherry Cobbler and the color of your choice.  I chose Old Olive.  
Upon a closer look, you can see the Polka Dot Parade DSP I used for the rosette.  I found a Cherry Cobbler colored button  in my giant container of buttons, and I found an Old Olive colored pearl for the center of that.

This was my first attempt at this crazy-cool ornament.  Don't worry... I'm sure there will be more.  This is just too cool!  Also, I learned somethings from making this one that I will work on applying to my next one... stay tuned!

Thanks for looking!
