Christmas tree's here!

You know how I said I'd be back with some more cards, fatal to say things like that isn't it, I've got Lumbago and so my crafting has stopped for the time being as I've a job to move, can just about sit here to do this, it usually goes on for  about four days or so well I' hope it's no longer anyway,

Luckily I'd already made my project for this weeks Die Cut dreams challenge which is anything but a card,
and the lucky winner will win a Guest DT spot for challenge #78, which is on the week of the 13th December,

I've made this which can be put on the table at Christmas for decoration and later moved to somewhere else if needed,
I used a tin lid I had, which I drew round on some paper, cut out, distressed the edges and stuck on the top, ribbon is run around the sides for the hint of red colour to match Tilda and the paper,
The scene is coloured using Distress inks as are the Christmas trees, but these I have cut out , the front single tree is cut out also but I've also cut every layer then raised the cut parts with Pin Flair glue after slightly shaping the branches,

Tilda is coloured with Copics, and the same Liquid Applique is added to the tree, all the images have tags at the back to allow the images to stand upright, and I have added these at angles to create the 3D effect,

Challenges:
All That scraps~ Magnolia Blog,
Bunny Zoes ~ Christmas but not a card,
Magnolia-licious Highlites ~ Home Sweet Home,
DCD Christmas~ Anything Goes,
Ellephantastic~ Christmas themed card or project,
Winter Wonderland~ Make a Decoration,
Stamptacular Sunday~ A time for Giving (No Cards) I may give it to my mum or my daughter,

I've still got those commissioned cards to make too, so I hope this Lumbago goes soon lol,

Come and join us at Die Cut Dreams, look forward to seeing you soon,
