A Christmas Card in Non Traditional Colours

I cant believe how late it is. I left my run very late today. Just as I was ready to hit the craft room, my son approached me with a mending job on some work pants he wanted to wear tomorrow (of course) so I was late into my room and now its just short of 11.30pm and I need to be up at 5.30am and on my way to babysit so will just post with minimum chatter -yes I know I still managed to chatter didn't I, lol.


Coloured my sweet little elf from MFT with Copics and finished off with silver and gold gel pen and a bit of glitter glue.

Just love the sparkle and depth to hat, cuffs and star. Drew on the lines on the tree with glue pen
and added glitter then added some gems.


A bit of glitter washi for the side to finish the card off perfectly and a 'cheers' sentiment
from one of those paper sentiment sets we all get and hold onto just in case....

Love my elf in blue and purple.

This is so cute Aileen and such a pretty little scene. Gotta love that little elf and I also like the dark banner sentiment which provides a really nice contrast.
