SANTA'S ELF

Morning Everyone

I have a fun card to share today.  I bought Santa's Elves by My Favourite Things recently and have been having a play with them.  I didn't treat myself to the matching dies and wish I had now, perhaps I'll put them on my wish list :).

This is the first one I coloured up and wanted to try something different to the normal christmas combinations.



I coloured him with copics before I looked for any paper, but luckily found one sheet that matched perfectly.  The card is only small, A6 I think.  I cut him out on a stitched circle and then decided to use the presents too so instead of stamping them on the circle I stamped them on a scrap and fussy cut them out.  I didn't want to mess it up at the last minute!

I know they're not traditional colours for a christmas card, but I'm pleased with how it's turned out.  The next one is already inked up in red and green.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Ribbon Girl - Any Image
Dragonfly Dreams - Patterned Paper
Creative Inspirations - Seasonal
Cute Card Thursday - Add a Banner/flags
Creative Knockouts - Anything Goes
Creatalicious - Anything Goes

I'll be back on Thursday and, in the meantime, I hope you are keeping well and thank you for visiting.
I love to read any comments you may wish to leave.
