Toasty Elf!

Hi Everyone

I am back with a 2nd post for today.  This time is with an Image from The Paper Shelter called A Marshmallow for the Christmas Elf.  This was one of the first images I ever purchased from them and I have now finally got around to colouring it up and making it into a card.  Thought it was just perfect for my 7 year old Son.  I love working with Greens and Reds at Christmas Time.  (Amongst other colours!)  I have coloured this using Promarkers and added Diamond Sparkles to the Bobbles, cuffs and other trim .  The Card Blank is 7" Square and my Base/Frame Layer is Gold Mirror Card.  I have layered a Green Paper with Snowflakes on onto this and this is from the Helz Cuppleditch Santa's Workshop Paper Pack.  I have also used a Stripey Paper from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Christmas Paper Pack.  I have used Memory Box Frosty Border Die and cut this in Gold Glitter Paper and I punched several Snowflakes also in Gold Glitter Paper using the X-Cut Snowflake Punch and placed them randomly!  The Sentiment is Hand Stamped with a Memento Tuxedo Ink Pad and you can purchase it from Stampingallday

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges

 My Son was excited when I told him I had made his card.  Let's hope he is just as excited when he opens it lol!  Thank you for sharing this card with me.  Please leave me a comment, I really do appreciate them!  Thanks for visiting and hope you can come back soon!
