Merry Monday #61

Happy Friday Everyone,

I'm here to share a card I created for this week's Merry Monday Challenge #61.  I have to admit, this week's sketch was a challenge for me, but I'm game!



This is what I came up with:


I didn't have any Christmas stamps that would work well with the sketch, so I decided to do something else - how about the elves legs!  So right after dinner last Tuesday, I went to work.  I hand drew the elves shoes and embossed with Square Lattice Folder.  It gave them the perfect texture.  The red/white cardstock is from SU! Holly Berry Bouquet DSP (retired).  This cardstock made the elves legs come to life!  The sentiment is from SU! Blessed Season. Lastly, I added 3 rhinestones to the top right hand corner and on the tips of the shoes.  I really like the way it came out!  This will definitely be one of my Christmas card templates for this year - a fun card to make!

Thank you so much for stopping by,
