The 400th Post -- Blog Candy Alert!!!

So, here it is!  My 400th blog post.  That calls for not only a special project but also some blog candy to celebrate.

First, for the project . . . I managed to recreate the beautiful ornament on the cover of the Holiday Mini Catalog -- it took a little time, but was very fun to make!  Here is my version:

You can only see a hint of it in the photos, but I added Dazzling Details along the edges of the ornaments for a bit of extra sparkle!  And, the back had to look pretty, too:

Okay, so that was the project!  Now, for the blog candy -- how would you like to be the recipient of the ornament I made?  If you would, please leave me a comment on this post before midnight PST on August 20th.  I'll randomly select the winner from those who have commented and post the winner on August 22nd.  (Be sure to include a way for me to contact you when you post your comment or be sure to check back to see if the ornament is yours!)  Good luck!

- Michelle

I so wanted to get that set just for this ornament... but then i realized I would never spend so much time after I counted how many times you have to cut!

AMAZING!!!!!! It looks awesome Michelle! Would love to do that for the august project :-)

WOW!!! This is GORGEOUS!!! I, like Renate, wanted this set to make the ornament...but then I realized, I'd NEVER have time to make it with my 2 little boys running around....I barely have ANY crafting time as it is. :O(

It's a really nice ornament.
And the sets do double duty as individual ornaments and as the beautiful artwork you designed.
