I am very sorry to hear of your loss. That is a beautiful ornament. The backer board makes the design stand out more.

You did a great job on the ornament and it had to be tough for you to work on the pattern and cutting. I made a pattern and cutting of my brother in law that we lost 3 yrs ago and it took me the most part of a year to get thru all of the attached emotions and the great sense of and for perfection that I demand of myself in making the pattern and the cutting.
