Altered Pages challenge 14 - Colours of The Season

Cool blues and golds are my colour theme, for this entry to the Altered pages challenge 14 - Colors of The Season. I created a Vintage style Christmas Plaque, using recycled card and string.
Items used:
French Oval Mirror Frame and honey glitter from Altered Pages
plus...
Recycled items: cardboard sheet/ card and string
Blue and Gold acrylic paint,shimmer mist & inks 
Vintage girl and paper, from my own stash 
die cut trees (recycled card)

*I cut out the trees and inked them first, then added glue and glitter.
Painted the frame with acrylic paint and glittered the edges, added paper to the back, and a Vintage girl. Painted the cardboard and swirled the paint to make a textured background. 
Once dry added string to hang and decorate, glued on elements and it was ready to hang.
I love the ornate frame and fine glitter catching the light so beautifully.

It is great fun entering the challenges at Altered Pages... Why not get creative and have a go
