Easel card for The Glory of Christmas challenge 75

This is my design card for The Glory of Christmas challenge 75: easel card - or anything goes as long as it's Christmas. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of others in the team and we would love to see you entries.

I used papers from the DCWV Christmas glitter pad (these are absolutely lovely and the beauty is that the glitter doesn't shed). I decided to make a twisted easel, using some silver rhinestones and some corrugated card for the 'stopper' across the middle - a row of larger rhinestones beneath the corrugated card.The image is The Stamping Boutique Christmas mouse (I love this). A few Hobbycraft poinsettias and the Happy Christmas banner on the corrugated card and the card was done.
