Elf Christmas Card

Hello fellow crafters! Wow it's been awhile since I've posted something on my blog, sorry! Life has been a bit different and Im adjusting to lifes changes, and because of that I haven't been feeling to crafty. No worries, I feel better and a bit more crafty, so last night I made this Elf Christmas card for my friend Tabitha over at Tabitha Designs. We're exchanging Christmas cards this year, how fun:)

I used Peachy Keens November 2012 monthly stamp kit for the cute little Elfs.

I colored the Elfs using my Spectrum Noir Markers. The colors I used were DR3, CR9, LG5, JG2, CG4, GB3, GB4, BG6, TN2, and TN3.

The front sentiment "Magical Holiday" is from My Creative Time's Its A Magical Season Stamp Set

The inside sentiment "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year" is from My Creative Time's From Our Family To Yours Stamp Set . 

The paper is from DCWV, sorry dont know the name of thre paper stack.
