Little Elf Ava

This afternoon I played with another Penny Black stamp design called Little Elf Ava. I think she is such a cute little elf and so therefore she is holding a star in which I added the word Joy as she looks to be a joyful little one.


Copics were used to color the image. The Joy comes from another Penny Black stamp set called Peaceful Winter and is stamped in dark green ink. I had to find a small enough sentiment to put into the star sign. And, to dress the star up a bit I added some green rhinestones to match the stamped sentiment. The panel was die cut using the Out of the Box Technique so that it appears that the fluffy ball of her hat is outside the inner panel. The scalloped stitched dies used to cut the panels are from an Unbranded set. 

I am entering this card in the Penny Black Creative Christmas Challenge.

Thanks for joining me and leaving your wonderful comments. I read all of them.

God bless,
Verna

She is one cute little elf girl, Verna! I love that you put a sentiment in the star. It looks like it belongs there. I'm getting more in the mood for Christmas cards, but still loving on fall, too. Such card making decisions!

This is a cutie...PB has some delightful elf images. The red Santa costume sparks this one up so well, and I loved the rhinestone detail on the star too. Also love the colorful festive mats with the fussy cut poof on her hat extending beyond the mat. TFS & Hugs
