Lil' Elfs

Hi and happy Friday :-) I told you :-) looove the Elfs :-) Heidi came up with this great sketch for the Friday Sketcher blog and i was like whoohoo THAT works with my new stamps. Iam sure you recognize not only the Elf from the new Magnolia line but also take a look at that fabulous bold tree with the swirls!!! I checked the Magnolia Inspiration site to see how Pauline imagined her design and from there my card developed. The stamping explanes itself, to the Elf and on the chocolate chip, distressed mats i added some sparkle with one of my fabulous glitter pens. I liked that look better than the more visible Stickles. Most of the papers and other things on this card are from my stash.. but the flowers and the elegant brads are by Magnolia sent.
other: Stampin up "French Script" Background stamp and Amuse sentiment
DP: DCWV Farytale DP and chocolate chip CS
Sorry, i have not had time yet to take the pics how to make envelope and i think i will not be able to post it today either cause iam baby sitting a whole bunch of little ones today :-)
