Early Christmas Makes

Good morning everyone and thanks so much for visiting!

A new month is here, and you know what that means...a new challenge at Penny Black and More.
This month we'd love to see your Early Christmas Makes. I hope you'll join us as we have several fabulous prizes up for grabs again.

For my Design Team card I decided to create a card using the super adorable Little Elf Mim, illustrated by Mo Manning, which is now available as a cling  rubber stamp sold by Penny Black. It was so much fun to color!! And I had so much creating the card. My colors were inspired by the designer paper that I purchased last year. 

I used my faber castell polychromos pencils to color the image, and copics for the skin. Glitter was applied to the fur on the hat and dress, and also to the ornament.

The sentiment is from the clear Penny Black set "Holly Jolly". I added a couple of punched branches (martha stewart punch) and a little button with some twine. Then did some sewing and rouned the bottom corners.

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
 Hope you'll find some time to play along for a chance at one of the fun prizes from our sponsors Penny Black, Stampalot, Art of Craft, Pretty Little Ribbon. Can't wait to see what you make!

Thanks again for visiting!
Enjoy your Sunday!
