Christmas Tag Swap

I know that since getting back from France, I have missed loads of weekly challenge tags over at the Tag Tuesday blog. I didn't feel very crafty at all. But when Carolyn announced the 2013 Christmas Tag Swap, I just couldn't resist it. It was just what I needed to get my creativity going again. This is what I came up with -

I went with a gold and white theme this year. The background is a glittered soft, almost fabricy paper, which I overlaid with some gold netting. I embellished the white braid at the bottom with glass beads and glass pearls rescued from a broken vintage necklace. The sweet little winter angel is standing on snow, which I covered in vintage 'glittering Christmas frost'. I had that little packet since the late 70s, I am sure. A few silver and white stars and snowflakes and that was it really.

Am dismayed at you using 'vintage' and '70's' in the same sentence!
