Here is my Ornament with Shrinky Dink
I used " Christmas Cardinals"stamp set from Marks Finest Papers a Heinrich company for my "Shrinky Dink".  I put some cuts of lace and flower soft inside of the ornament.  I then tied it up with some velvet pink ribbon, vintage lace, and added a strand of pearls for the holder.  I hope you will join the others and see all the sweet projects that they have made this week.  Remember we still have two days left so hope you stop by again. (note... this was soooo hard to photograph!!!!)
