Kraftin Kimmie Challenge!

Happy late Thursday everyone! I have had a busy past few days but hopefully things are on a little more even keel for the moment. My card today is for the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge which is to use your favorite stamp. I love allll the stamps she releases and I just received this one titled Toymaker Elf and he is definitely at the top of my list.


I really liked this bright green and red combo, very cheery I thought. I added some bling with the glittered ribbons and some stickles on his cuffs. Outlined everything in black for some punch and a big poinsettia from WOC in the corner. Have a great weekend!

This is a cute card, wouldn't it be perfect for a little one for Christmas. Nice coloring, and the bright green paper and embellishments are so cute. I like how you glittered the poinsettia, too. Hope work is going well.
