I happened to come across this cute Stampendous set that I bought awhile ago...I had forgotten about it, because it was purchased way before the holidays. Anyway, I am happy to have found it...I think the little elf is adorable! I love her child-like exuberance!
The image is colored with pencils and accented it with glitter. I decided on a bright color scheme...I love the pink/red combo! For embellishing, I paper pierced, added some brads, and finished it off with some ribbon. I used Jen del Muro's December Sketch for You to Try.
I must confess this is "version 2". As I was uploading the photos of my card, I decided I didn't like the proportions of the image panel.... So back to the craft table I went! I stamped, colored, and mounted a new image panel and took off the original image panel (it came off in 1 piece, so I will be able to use it for another card). "Version 1" was not mounted on colored CS; the image was diecut only...it seemed to get lost on the card. I really like this version better...the only thing I would change is the position of the knot on the ribbon...I would center it perhaps. Just wondering if any of you ever do any "card surgery"? LOL
