These pictures do not begin to do this ball justice. The ball itself was given to me by my cousin's aunt. I sometimes jokingly say that I can't decorate a ball until it "speaks" to me! Well, this one did! I had seen red marbles with a gold iridescence at A C Moore, and the minute I saw this ball I knew that those marbles would be perfect for it. I also immediately thought of my sister's sister-in-law, who loves black, gold, and sparkles, so she was the recipient. I used red heart-shaped marbles and filled in the rest of the area with the iridescent reds. At that time I hadn't discovered the macro button yet on the camera, which explains why the closeup shot isn't very clear. Maybe someday I'll have an opportunity to photograph it again.
