Seeing Vintage Stars

Today I have a project to share with you that I absolutely adore!
Since I am in love with all things vintage and shabby I thought it would be fun to join in on the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week which is dedicated to Tim Holtz and all things vintage.  I also love the challenge over at The City Crafter Challenge Blog this week titled "I See Stars".
Since the glitter reminds me of a little bit of metal, I'm going to add this to the challenge in The Shabby Tea Room for some DT inspiration!

I had fun making this vintage bird ornament.  First I die cut my large star from chipboard and covered it in some delicious Girl's Paperie floral print.  Then I took some Papertrey Ink sweet blush cardstock and made it into a paper medallion.  I then embellished the edges with some sparkly silver glitter.  Next came my sweet little birdie center!  The chipboard bird is from Tattered Angels and I sprayed him with some glimmer mist for an altered and glittery look and I popped him front and center! 
I just love the music background on this little guy!
What a fun project to make and such a cute look!  I could see putting this little cutie on a Vintage style Christmas tree!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you enjoyed my little ornament!
Have a great day!
