On The Ninth Day Of Christmas

It's my turn today to give my gifts. I hope everyone likes them. I am always so indecisive about these kind of things and of course this time was no different.
I made this shadowbox ornament using vintage ledger paper as the background and then covered it with glitter, tiny glass beads and a few pearls. Then I attached a reproduction of a vintage postcard on top. I covered the shadowbox with a sheet of acrylic (can't see it in this photo) and then trimmed the whole thing with tinsely garland.
This was my first idea for the swap. I made small soldered charm/ornaments of everyone's blog or etsy shop banners and added an initial charm too.
On the back of the charm I used Heather's blog banner image from the 12 Days to Christmas blog to commemorate our fun little swap. I couldn't decide which gift I liked best, so I sent them both!
