Christmas in August

I was very excited recently to find an affordable Jolly Holidays cartridge.  I'd been looking for it for ages, and am so happy to add it to my collection!  I decided to make a card with one of the cute elves that are found on this card.

I used a red A2 card, with patterned paper from All Seasons 2 from Paper Studio.  The green cardstock was embossed with ProvoCraft's Snowflake embossing folder.  I cut the elf at 3.5 inches.  He was pretty simple to put together, but as with all of the Lite cartridges I was glad that I sat and really looked at what layers were what, because I'm used to cutting the base layer in black on cartridges like Create a Critter but his base layer is actually the white.

I colored his Christmas lights with green and blue Sharpies, because I wanted them to be multicolored.  Then I went over them with Christmas Red and Firefly stickles.

I'm entering this card in the following challenge:
Celebrate the Occasion- Christmas in August
