~* Shabby Vintage Christmas Altered Paper Bag & Tags (A Christmas Card for a Friend) *~

Happy weekend, everyone!
Here's *another* (hehe) altered paper bag with tags that I made.  I used the super cute and vintage Melissa Frances Countdown to Christmas paper collection.  It has such super cute vintage images!  Love it.
I layered the DP, added a bunch of yummy trims, including my fave pom pom trims, lace that I tied in a bow and added a TH trinket pin and halfback pearl, some pretty applique pieces, trinket heart and flower pearls, and paper flowers.  Everything was distressed with Distress Ink in Antique Linen and acrylic paint in Antique White.  I also doodled and accented with Stickles throughout.  
The two tags have some pretty vintagey buttons and the edges are distressed with paint.
I am entering this project into three challenges:
1. DYSU Challenge Blog - DYSU #94 - Vintage
2. jingle belles - Holiday Creature Feature - I tried to showcase the sweet little puppies and kitty on the paper.  They are peaking out here and there.
3. Simon Says Stamp and Show - Challenge - Your Favorite - My favorite has got to be layering and textures :)!  Love it so much.  (Appliques are also my fave!)
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!
*hugs* and Much aloha to you~!
Steph :)
