The weather certainly has changed and the summer clothes have been swapped for more warmer attire. Next thing you know christmas will be here - which brings me on to my card for today.
I've used this darling image from Mo Manning called 'Little Elf Finn' which I coloured with Promarkers. You can also get 'The Elves' as toppers from The Hobby House. I paper pieced the bauble with some card embossed with a Die'sire Holiday Holly folder and to give it a bit of dimension I 'padded' it with kitchen towel, then carefully cut under the legs and tucked the 'bauble' under them before sticking in place. Then I added Stickles to the fur on the image and the up-raised parts on the embossed bauble. The papers are Bearly Mine Designs and Kaisercraft and the sentiment is LOTV. I made the poinsettias using Tatterd Lace christmas florals die and coloured them with Promarkers and the white swirly die underneath is Marianne Creatables LR0157. The tiny red gems in the centre of the flowers and the berries on the image are from The Hobby House as are the pearls, and the pearl spray and bow are from my stash.
