DAY 18 - Christmas Inspiration

Hello Crafters!

Firstly, I need to apologise for treasing you all yesterday, I'm afraid that the news I have will have to wait a few more days! I promise you will all be in the know when I get the ok to spill the beans!
Today I have another Tonic sample to show you, this was a card design that was shown on the Christmas Craftinator show. (the flash was a little bright on the bauble - sorry!)

I have cut the Christmas Verso die into black glitter card leaving the pattern in the card.
the Rococo bauble die has been cut and embossed onto mirri card and gems placed around the middle of the design.  I have used the Rococo Poinsettia strip in the lower corner.
The flower has been cut in glitter card too to give it a bit of bling!
A few gems finish the design off.
I hope this is another design that inspires you all, I am really enjoying reading all of your comments and really appreciate you all taking the time to leave a comment.
Keep commenting to be in with a chance at the blog candy!!
Hope to see you all again tomorrow,
Bye for now
Jo xx
