Christmas Elves

Hi everyone, it's time for a celebration challenge over at Digital Pencil Too-let's say we celebrate our 106th challenge, what about you, is there something you or a friend of yours would like to celebrate? If so, pick one of Mo's adorable images and make a card, a 3D project or whatever crosses your mind just don't forget to focus on a 
Now, I'm guessing many of us have already entered the Christmas spirit, so my card today will all be about Christmas and its magic; so eventually I had the chance to play with these two adorable elves Mo has sop generously offered to us a while ago, and I'm so grateful because I simply adore them:).Thanks Mo!
I merged the two images and added snow marker on their hats. I like the result:)

Nothing fancy about the inside; since I'm a bit in a hurry making these Christmas cards I thought I'd better stick to embellishing 2 panels and keep the inside simple.

Materials used:
Stamps: Mo Manning Little Elf Mim and Little Elf Pipa
Medium: Copics and promarkers
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, metal corner, lace from stash
flower in in inside made with a maple leaf punch
Misc; pearls, acrylic white paint, sticles, snow marker.

Meljens Designs -  Christmas
Paper Crafting Journey - Use a Digi
Paper Pretties - Embellish
Paper Shelter Challenge -Anything goes
Pixie Cottage -Sketch* and/or gold

Hope you guys will join us in the fun! I invite you to take a look at the beautiful creations of my teammates on the Digital Pencil Too challenge blog and hope to see many of you playing along! I've surely been amazed at the great number of entries we had last week:)

Big hugs and take care!

Oh I love how you put these two elfs together. It makes a lovely funny scene.
Your bright coloring is amazing as ever. Love your layout. And that was not to easy because the image is not the smallest.
Great way of making your sentiment.
