My first Tussie Mussie

As you know I have bought a few of the Crafteezze collections so today I'm showing another creation I made with the Art Deco Collection, 
I've made my first Tussie Mussie, using some of the kit and a few items from my stash too,
I found this gorgeous vintage photo in my stash, not sure where I got it from to be honest but just had to use it on here, I added one of the gorgeous corners from the kit on the top of the photo after I had distressed the edges a little,
Me and vintage EEEKKKK!!!  but It's growing on me, lol

Behind the photo I used a die cut snowflake from Tracy's Noor Design Uk  online shop, adding one of the clear gems in the middle, at the other side of this I added a couple of the leaf die cuts, to keep in with the colour scheme,
Below the photo Is the black and gold lace which I first wrapped around the Tussie Mussie then below that added a lattice border die, I added the black metal frame from the kit, adding a bird I made out of air dry clay and a mold from my stash,
The gorgeous feather in white this time again was part of the Art Deco kit, the pearl embellishment was in my stash,
Here you can better see the lace and the paper, 
Behind the feather on the other side I used one of the foiled sentiments from the kit along with a pen nib which isn't showing up here doh!!,
The top edge of the Tussie Mussie has another Lattice die cut border die attached and I added a pearl string over/on the top of the Tussie Mussie which I bought from Tracy's shop too,
If you squint you can just make out the pen nib just above the organza flower which again was in my stash, I then added a couple of more die cut leaves again keeping to the same colour ways, under the flower I used a star charm then on the very bottom of the Tussie Mussie one of the Tassels this time in black to hang down again part of the kit, to finish it off,
For the inside top, I lined it with some tissue paper then added some moss, tiny flower and another leaf die, from my stash, I then finished it off with two of the straws, a metal leaf in bronze colour and one of the large Prima black flowers which were all part of the kit, The ribbon holding it up was what Tracy had used to tie the package and it was perfect to use for this too,
So there you have my first Tussie Mussie, with a little vintage and a little Art deco, but I honestly can say I loved making this and will be doing some more,
