Good morning all, hope you had a good weekend.  As its Tuesday its time for a new challenge over on 
Its still Christmas in July..
and this week we have a sketch for you to follow.
July 26 sketch

So here's my take on the sketch.  I used the carousel horse again, I just love this stamp! and can be used for many different occasions.  I have teamed it up with the gorgeous "Merry Christmas" sentiment. 

Copic colours 
Horse - E34, 33, 31, 30 - E37, 35, 33, 31
BGo1, 0000, BG10

The Christmas tree is a wooden decoration that I brought last year in the sale.  Its just been painted with acrylic paint and picket fence crackle paint over the top and then distressed with Shades Die Ink -Satin Rose.  I then added a metal snowflake charm attached with sliver cord. 

This is the view from the inside of the easel card the circle was cut with a XL stackers die from Cheery Lynn..
