Have your 'elf' a Merry Little Christmas!!

A couple of cute elves cards from me today!!
This 1st card is for the PaperTakeWeekly sketch #24 challenge. I have used this very cute Christmas Elf from Squiggle Stamps. He is just part of the Christmas Elves kit - see HERE.

I have used some gorgeous Bo Bunny papers (also available as a mini kit from Squiggle!) and coloured the image with promarkers. I found the fab 'little elf' stamp in a 99p bucket of clear stamps, a perfect sentiment for this little guy, they are by Studio G.
I just added some red gingham ribbon and pearls to finish :0)

For this card I coloured in the image in readiness for the Passion for Promarkers challenge of using Marine and Emerald. This was before I saw the extra challenge of 'anything but a card' LOL! I will have to get my thinking cap on for that one :0)

I have used the scraps of paper leftover from the previous card. All the Bo Bunny papers are double-sided so fab for mix and matching.

The stripy paper is embossed with the cuttlebug snowflakes folder. I have added the stack of pressies and sentiment from the Christmas Elves kit and a polka dot bow and punched snowflakes to finish.

Thanks for looking xx

Hi Jenny,
These are super cute. Love the image & the DPs. Think I like the second one best, if only for the embossed snowflakes, but they are both fab!
