A Vintage Christmas

i thought i'll add my final design for this week...'cause i'm off on holiday for a week... Yippeee!!!!

the background is done with Tim Holtz's Double Distress technique. i added some chunky glitter to give a little sparkle. and keeping with the theme no red or green, i thought i'll contrast the background with blues. the wording is done with blue acrylic paint with little glitter & gold paint. the bauble is done with another Tim Holtz technique using crackle inks and alcohol inks. finally, add the lace and the ribbons.
