Better Be Good or Elf!

I started this card over a month ago, and then put it aside for awhile. Pulled it out the other day and finished it to give to my three grandkids, and they loved it! They have an Elf on A Shelf that they adore, so this really tickled them. The stamp set and matching dies are by Stampendous (Seated Elf) and I used gold glitter paper by Recollections, a tag die by Sizzix, and a zig zag stamp by CAS-ual Fridays.

Color Dare 372, I used red, green, gold, and peach from the tic-tac-toe board

  1. This is adorable Karen! Lovely colouring and a great match to the paper you used too. We have an elf here - it was peeping from behind Len's laptop screen yesterday morning. Wonder how he got there, wink. Dudley would so love to get his paws on it!

    Hugs - and Merry Christmas -
