Last Christmas card for 2013?

Hello all!
       I wasn't going to do any more Christmas cards but the latest challenge over at Make it Colourful had me feeling festive for one more time!  There are 2 challenges - 1.) use red and green and 2.) add texture so I decided to combine both and coloured up Scruffy Elf with my Copics.  I tried as best I could to add texture to his clothes by adding some wrinkles and folds..........what do you think?

    I'm also using the Sketch challenge from the Make it Crafty Facebook challenge so 3 for the price of 1!



Thanks for popping in!

Wowzer girlie! This is outstanding! You brought this little elf to life with your gorgeous colouring. Your colour choices, blending and shading shows such depth and perfect dimension! I love the sketch of course and the papers are matched brilliantly. Outstanding, talk about ending this Christmas card season with a BANG! Cheers:)Sandra

Wow - cool card, Dawn!
Have a great day... :)

Great card. What a funny little elf! I can't tell if he is tired from shopping or making toys, or just wanting the season to be over, but I think he needs a big mug of hot chocolate with a peppermint stick. So cute, and great job on the coloring. Your shading really added a realistic effect to the clothing. Bravo, and Merry Christmas.
