Santa's Elf, MM216 & RS85

Hi friends! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I have a cute, simple Christmas card for you today. I'm using the Santa's Elves stamp set for the first time, which I bought to play along with one of the challenges. I didn't have any elves, and after perusing my Christmas sets, I see I am also missing Santa, angels and snowmen. I seem to always gravitate to the same things, florals, foliage and critters! 

Merry Monday is the challenge that sent me shopping this week. I'm also playing along with Retro Sketches where the challenge is to pick any of their prior sketches, and I went with RS85.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Santa's Elves, Layering Christmas Tree, Layering Wreath, Say Hello (Hero Arts)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Cucumber Crush (Stampin' Up), Schoolhouse Red (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Perfectly Plaid Christmas (Lawn Fawn)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Sea Glass (Altenew)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Santa's Elves Dies (Hero Arts), Stitched Scallop Borders Dies (Lawn Fawn)
Accessories: Button and Cotton Thread (from my sewing stash)

Thanks for visiting!
