Vintage Shabby Chic Christmas Ornament

Hello Friends and Welcome to my blog!
I would like to share with you a vintage style Christmas Ornament that I created.
I started out with some sweet vintage Candle reflectors (?) that I purchased from my local antique shop.
I added some Christmas paper and the word "Christmas" that I picked up and edited from the Graphic Fairy.  I ended up using two angels, both which came from Gecko galz.  The scalloped round piece is actually just aluminum foil that I cut out for the back.
Here it is put together.
I will have to say it is looks good here...but in real life it is glittery gorgeousness!!  I used some Christmas picks left over from last year.  Martha Stewart and Art Glitter to add some glitteryness.  My shabby pink and white rose came from the Flying Unicorn Online store.  I used a Maya Roads Chipboard pieces which I got from my 
BFF's Local Scrapbook Store.   The vintage button is just one of many from trips to the antique store.  Here is another photo of it on my new tree..also from the antique store.
The angels were covered with UTEE.  So they are nice and glossy looking.  I rubbed some vintage photo over age them a bit.
I am sharing this shabby vintage chic ornament with the Shabby tea room, Simon says Stamp and Maggi's Making metal Challenge at the flying Unicorn.  I am also sharing this at flutterbyWednesdays since I have two cute angels!!  I found a new place for just sharing your art from one of my blogging buddies Diane.  It is called Make it Monday.  So make sure you stop by those blogs and see the beautiful inspiration there.
One last close up!

Don't forget....Friday is the day that I will be featured at Passionately Artistic, and you can get the Free Thankful Cards (Collage set) that I created.  Hugs!!
