Santa's Little Helper

Hi its time for another challenge over at Christmas Stamping All Year Long. The challenge this week is to make a holiday project using this photo as inspiration.

What a lovely festive scene. Please pop over and join in - its always good to get ahead with your Christmas cards.
They are sponsored this week by Meljen's Designs who have some great digis.
I chose this one called "Santas Little Helper" - what a cute Elf.
The image is coloured using copics and the papers and card are from my stash. I don't know whether the bow shows up very well but recently I purchased all different colours of this mesh  and think it makes a lovely change from ribbon. The sentiment is one of my new Lili of the Valley sentiment stamps - really pleased with them. I added some contrasting flowers and finished them centres with a selection of brads and lastly added a lovely Christmas Tree button.
I am entering my card in the following challenges -
52cct/july-embellishment-challenge 3 or more brads (i used 4)
lexiscreations/challenge-70 -Christmas in July
