Lala's Merry Christmas (The East Wind image)

Hi, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest follower - Antonella - so happy you are here!

I'm back again tonight and, boy, oh boy, I am cutting it close for this challenge!  I think it closes in about an hour!  I just had to play along with this newsletter freebie from The East Wind called Lala's Merry Christmas - such a cute image - and you know how I love kitties!  I coloured the little ornament with my Prismacolor pencils, added white Flower Soft to Lala's hat, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape.

I die cut a pine branch (Impression Obsession) and inked it with Pine Needles Distress Ink.  I added some silver twine to the ornament and wrapped it around the pine branch.  The patterned paper is a left-over snippet from another project, and I think the glittery dots work well with the ornament. I added a die-cut banner and star (Lala Land Stitched Elements) and stamped the banner with a cute sentiment from Newton's Nook - Newton's Holiday Mischief set.  

Also linking up to Colette's Cosmic Colours Challenge #8 (see colours below) - I think I've got almost all of the colours this time!

Cosmic Colours Challenge #8

Elfis, my little Elf, loves to get into the photos!  He sneaks in there when I'm not looking, and he looks so cute that I must take the picture!  He thinks kitty's hat looks just like his!  Why don't you join in the fun over at DL.ART's Second Annual Elf Antics Linky Party with your 3-D elf!
