Hello friends!! I hope all is well with you!!  Finally getting back to posting more often since the craft show is behind me!! I can have time to breath again!  It was so fun but so busy!!

Here is an ornament I created using not three but 7 circles!!

Your ornament is just lovely, gives the feel of those blue china plates, love what you did with the sketch, the crackle background is cool and goes perfectly with your image and other embossing, sweet packages and like how you paper pieced the bows!
