Vintage Christmas Gift Bag

My mum, my youngest sister and I have a tradition of giving each other advent calendar gifts  - we give 12 presents to each person, so that makes 24 in total since we are 3 persons. It's perhaps a quite childish thing to do, but at least it gets me out of bed each morning, which normally is quite hard as I like to stay warm under the covers and I'm not a typical morning bird! Today I received a Rachelle Anne Miller clear stamp which I look forward to ink up!

This gift bag contains a gift for my sister for the 5th of Decemeber.
I've used a new die, the Spellbinders Basic Lattice die. I've covered it with flowers, a vintage image and a die cut tree. The flowers have got red and diamond glitter glue on their petals.
The sentiment is a leftover from a DP I used for another card. The background paper has been sprinkled with glimmer mist - it doesn't show on the pictures, but in real life you can see the sparkly effect. I've also tied a bow onto which I've fastened a snowflake metal charm. I've added pearls in each corner of the bag.

Oh that lattice die is woderful on this bag. I love the vintage feel to this project. The image is so old world ollking...perfect for a vintage project.
I need to order some charms on line. They are not found easily here and when you find them they are old brass foloured and almonst a dollar each or more!
I see them in online stores and yours make a lovely addition to your bag.
