For My project I have created this little easel card box inspired by some of Norma's creations. It will be perfect for giving someone a little treat at Christmas. Maybe I will tuck some homemade candies or cookies inside.


I coloured the image with Copics and accented with liquid applique and stickles to as some sparkle and dimension and just give the image that little extra.


I have used some of my favorite dies from Tim Holtz along with a new Marianne die to create the background details and embellish.

I hope that you have been inspired. Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to head on over to the main challenge blog and see the rest of the beautiful DT creations.

I will come back tonight to link this to some challenges.
