Happy Thanksgiving!

Good morning and "Happy Thanksgiving"! It's hard to believe the holiday season is here...where did the year go? Today I have SCS sketch challenge #308 featuring a little elf, just in case you are going to brave "Black Friday" tomorrow and need a little shopping inspiration!
When I was looking through my stamps I came across this cute little elf and decided to run with it. The DP was already on my table, so that was an easy choice. I had completed the card and was disappointed because it was missing somthing.... That's when I had the idea to take off the lower right jingle bell and add a snowflake. I think it was just the right touch, as it had looked bare before. The snowflake is 3 different Spellbinder's dies, layered together. The middle layer has the same glitter on it that I applied to the elf's fur trim. I like the sparkle! I found the jingle bell brads at Hobby Lobby last summer; I thought they were kind of fun!
