Christmas elf card

Here's another Christmas card I have made and (shock!) I didn't use the Create a Critter cartridge!  Instead I used another cartridge I love, Paper Doll Dress ups.  This card will also go to the 'I feel the love' project.  (Read about it here).

This time I have used very non-traditional colours and am just hoping that the elf and the sentiment are enough to make it feel like a Christmas card.  Who said Christmas had to be green and red anyway?!!

I used the Mojo Monday sketch for the design of my card and rotated it 90 degrees.

I actually stamped a Christmas tree to go on this card too but it just didn't look right and made everything feel crowded and uneven so I stuck with my 'less is more' philosophy and left it as it was.

Papers were all from My Minds Eye. 
Sentiment and bling are Kaisercraft.
Ric rac and button from my stash

Thanks for looking!
