I'm participating all three days with products from Pretty Little Studio. Today's card features a cozy little elf snuggling a little bird - the perfect feather blanket! This sweet image is called Bashful Elf. It's a die cut - so it's printed and trimmed and ready to work with. My grandmother used to have little "elves" around the house at Christmas but she called them Pixies.

I've got lots of layers on this card. the base is papers from the Jingle Bells Collection. On top of that I added a Cambridge 4" doily (you can see it above) it's peeking out from a Festive Bookmark Journaling Card.

Do you see the little strip of tape in the bottom right corner? That's new Be Good Vellum Tape! One sheet has several patterns and you can cut them to size. I used only about an inch here so I'll have enough for several projects!
Isn't this little guy just the sweetest?

Really cute image of the elf and the little birdie! Love the bright colors you used on this card and your talented way of always picking the right patterned paper to match. I lack some creativity in that area so I am always impressed with the people who do it so well.

I am so happy that you were a part of this blog hop again. I follow your blog so I do see all your amazing products with you post.

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for you in the New Year!
