Summer Celery Elf

Wow talk about untypical Christmas colors. This is for today's color challenge and I had to make it work for a Christmas card because I have to get mine done. My friend Tammi sent me this adorable image and he was the first thing that came to mind when I read the colors. I made a boo boo at first and colored him with Always Artichoke instead of Old Olive. I liked the Always Artichoke better but I redid another image with Old Olive. He has some sparkles on his hat and scarf, then his shoes and mitten cuffs are covered with liquid applique. Gotta go check out the gallery and see what everyone else came up with for the challenge. Happy Stamping!!!

Stamps: Snowbound - Pixel & Pookie (Stampendous), Polka Dot, Canvas, Chicken Scratch (TAC)
Paper: Summer Sun, white, Old Olive, Certainly Celery
Ink: Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Noir (Palette, TAC)
Other: corner punch, Scrap in the City sprinkles (Queen & Co.), Stardust Stickles, liquid applique, Heidi Swapp edge distresser, grosgrain from Walmart
