Christmas Decoration....

Evening peeps just got back from a gruelling day shopping at Birmingham......it was packed, but I just couldn't find anything inspirational to buy for Christmas, I think its disappointing now that so many of the shops don't even bother with any festive decorations, so todays post is my alternative to Christmas cards for my family this year, the images, paper and frame are all from Crafty Individuals, I dipped the sides of the images in vintage glitter which I brought in the Netherlands earlier on in the year, the beaded fringe I made with pearls and metallic bronze beads. Poinsettis flowers are made using the Marianne die and the scrolls that I painted in bronze are from Sizzix.I added metal gilding to parts of the frame for a smidge more bling.



Challenges

Tuesday Taggers......A decoration.
PaperTake.......use die cuts or a punched out shape.
Everybody Art.......Use shapes.
Creative Inspiration.....red, green and gold.
Crafty Creations.....Christmas.
C.R.A.F.T........Christmas present.
