Sweet Christmas Wishes

Wow, it has been a while since I last posted.  My life is a little hectic right now, but I try to make time for creative therapy!  Actually, my Christmas card list gets bigger and bigger each year, and I do need to get started.  My card today is for the current Lucy's Lovely Lines Challenge at Lilly Pad Cards.  I have also been anxious to try one of their fun challenges as well. Here is Lucy's sketch:

and here is my card.....

I turned the sketch around, and used one of my new favorite digital stamps from A Day for Daisies.  Isn't he the cutest little elf?  I used two different Papertrey Ink stamp sets to customize the greeting.   I am getting in the Christmas spirit for sure!

Paper:  Bazzill, Neenah Classic Solar White and scraps
Ink:  Versafine, Onyx Black  
Stamps:  ADFD and PTI
Other:  Martha Stewart border punch, Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol and Hero Arts gems
