Christmas Card Challenges: Week 2

Hello crafty friends!
I hope your Sunday is off to a glorious start!

Today marks the beginning of another challenge at 

The challenge is:

You can create a project based on the carolers, the colors, music, etc. If the photo does not inspire you, feel free to skip it and just create a Christmas card. These additional "challenges" are always optional. The only real rule is that it needs to be a Christmas/Holiday card.
Easy right?? 

Here is the card that I created based on the above photo:

I love this little elf stamp from Peachy Keen. I have had it in my stash for awhile now and hardly ever use it. This stamp was screaming to be used for this challenge though :) I stamped her onto some Copic cardstock and colored her in. I used a postage frame die to cut her out and then stamped my greeting at the top. I wrapped some thread around my patterned paper, adhered it to the card base and tied a bow with some jingle bells on it. I popped up my image piece with some foam adhesive and added some glossy accents and some little details with my white gel pen. So super simple but I love it!! I almost added some sequins and enamel dots but they just didn't look right to me so clean and simple I left it lol! 

Be sure to head over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog and take a look at what my design team sisters created! I hope you will decide to join us and create a card for the challenge! :) 
I would love to see what you create!

I will also be entering my card into the following challenges:

I hope you have a great crafty day!
