Jingle all the way..

It really isn't that far away...Christmas that is..and if i want to get a head start on making cards, i need to get started, huh?  I just counted the weeks before i'd send out cards..and it's roughly 15 weeks..i guess i need to double up and do two a week!

So i decided for this card, i would go Christmas..and of course it didn't hurt that i already had the image colored from last year. 

Here is my card using a vintage/retired Elf from The Greeting Farm:
Yes, of course i used some dies for this card.  The largest die is from Memory Box and is the Frostyville Wreath #98418, inside of the wreath i added a Spellbinders die called Moroccan Accents S5064.  Then a fun new little die is the Jolly jingle bells #98651..it comes with 5 bells to fit on top of a Jingle bell border...but i used it as a single bell by it self.  The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch and the berries are a larger hand punch. 

Close up of the jingle bell die embellishment:

Don't forget to ask to see if we still have the above dies in stock at Dutch Paper Crafts!

I didn't save the Copic info for this coloring..i am guessing this is what i used:
skin- E50, 51, R20
hair- E97, 99, 02
outfit- R35, 39, YG03, 17

Sketch used is from Christmas Challenges (rotated):  (I am following this blog by email to keep me on track to get my Christmas cards done)
Challenges:
