Christmas Triptych Easel

We had a wet miserable morning today and a dull damp afternoon, typical when I had to go out and was getting my hair done. Never mind I got an afternoon in the craft room while hubby went to Edinburgh to get me a card and pressie for our anniversary tomorrow (Saturday) - which reminds me I need an insert put in my card to him.
I made this tonight:

The Thomas Kinkade image was printed onto acetate and was given to me in a Sheenie Angel envelope. I mounted the image onto white glitter card using staples then divided it into three pieces which were mounted onto scraps of white pearlescent card. I then used the grand nestie die to position and stick the three pieces onto blue stardream card and then die cut through everything (with a struggle lol). I made a base easel card using the same nestie die. I've used a ribbon bow for a stop topped with a white poinsettia and added a peel off sentiment.

Challenges entered:
Crafty Creations - anything but square
Crafty Catz - ribbons
Rainbow Lady - acetate and Christmas theme
Cute Thursday - at the office
Bunny Zoes - easel card
Christmas Card Challenges - theme optional
Ribbon Carousel - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by today, I love to read your comments.
