Vintage Retro Christmas Angel Ornament

Happy Tuesday Friends!!
Today I would like to share with you my third 
Really Reasonable Ribbon blog post.
I'm in Christmas mode.  So today's creation is a 
Vintage Chic Christmas Ornament.
(I know you are thinking...she is always doing ornaments....lol).
I used some fabulous ribbon and trims from RRR.
Red leavesivory pom poms, peppermint baker's twine and aqua organza ribbon, really add to my retro Vintage Christmas ornament.
I used a two freebie Angel images from Gecko Galz.  You can find the original images on some of the other Gecko Galz DT blogs.  Leanne gave them to us for free to give to you, yesterday during our Cyber Monday sale.  I did some editing to it, then added it to a different background and shrunk it so it would fit with in my spellbinder die.  I used some candi foam pads to add a little dimension to the "letters to Santa" piece.
Here are a couple close ups.
I used ivory card stock for my piece that I used with my spellbinder die.  Inked my edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I used Art Glitter Glue to add glue to my piece and I applied both red and crystal glitters (refer to photos for placement).
This is a super easy ornament that you can make.  
Hope you have a great day!
Thank you for visiting!!
Here is the collage sheet that I created, a lot of work goes into these, I get rid of backgrounds, add things, there are many layers to my work.  Collage sheets are more work than they appear.  I normally don't tell you all the deets on the changes etc, because it would bore you...LOL.  Feel free to watch some of my youtube videos on working with GIMP.  You will see what all you can do to alter images, and the time that it takes.

I will be sharing with
