DAY 8 - Christmas Inspiration

Good Sunday Afternoon,

I hope that you are all enjoying this gorgeous Autumn Sunday afternoon.  I think this is one of my favourite times of the year especially which the sun shines (and you can still get your washing dried out on the line!)

Are you still following the Christmas Inspiration? today we have another easel design ~

This is full of Marianne Design dies and the stamp is a Marianne too.  I have used a shaped card to make the easel which gives it a little bit more interest. I love this tree - it really is a great size and can be used on its own but also layered up like I have done here.  I have used Weathered wood distress ink to highlight all of the embossed details in the dies and also around the edge of the card.
I hope you like this idea and leave a comment to let me know what you think.
Dont forget if you leave a comment you will be put into a draw for some lovely blog candy at the end of the 30 days.
Thankyou, as always for popping by,
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you tomorrow,
Bye for now
Jo xx
