It’s a bird, it’s a plane…it’s…

An elf? How about letting this little guy string your holiday lights!

My little pea green friend here is from Close to My Hearts Merry Pursuits set.  While he does make an adorable Christmas card he also marks card number 4 for the October Challenge on Christmas Cards All Year Round for me!  Being that this card uses that wacky green paper from Merry Wishes an old TAC set and I used my Spellbinders to make circles and scallops.
Copics did the coloring and man what a pain reds are to work with, wonder if I’ll ever get the hang of them??  My elfish friend’s attire was colored with YG03 and YG06, the reds were R02 and R05 for the hat.  This was my second (or maybe third) attempt at a dotting background and this one I really, really love! Same greens as his clothes plus YG11 and YG23 tossed in there.  The sentiment is from Stampa-Rosa House Mouse (yes it’s old.) I dotted the sentiment too because well, the white just looked too stark to me and well this card is just supposed to be fun!
Are your fingers inky yet???
