MFT October Release Countdown Day 5

Are you ready?  It's countdown time for My Favorite Things October Release!
This month features lots of holiday goodness with stamps, stencils, dies,
and a few new colors of inks and card stock thrown in for good measure.

Today's card features Trim the Tree and coordinating Die-namics by Lisa Johnson.

I stamped the Wood Plank Background on kraft card stock and die cut
the rectangle element from Blueprints 24. The Christmas tree, star, presents,
and bows were inked with dye inks and spritzed with water before
stamping on watercolor paper.

I die cut the images with the coordinating dies, and assembled them
on the panel. I added the sentiment and sprinkled a few sequins on the tree.

Be sure to stop by the MFT blog for links to the other designers participating
in today's release, and leave a comment there for your chance to win prizes.

Thanks for stopping by, and hope to see you tomorrow!
