Be Jolly...

Hello there friends!

It's my birthday today and while I'll be working for most of it I do think I'll probably go out afterwards to celebrate with some friends. Though I can't stay out too late because then I'd miss the to-die-for delicious peppermint cheesecake that my sis is making for me. I tell ya... I'm feeling the love!  :)

So I've got another wonky card to share but this time the tilt was intentional from the start. Little Elf Finn was needing some ink and a card to shine on and I thought the tilted look would work really well to help convey the motion of that little guy swinging on the ornament. The papers are an older Making Memories 8x8 pad that I cut into and can now cross off my list... three down, 17 to go. LOL! As always, I pulled my copic colors from the papers so that Finn would match nicely. I kept the embellishing to a minimum with just a bit of gold washi tape and a sprinkle of gold die cut stars. I will admit that I have totally fallen in love with the current gold trend, especially in my crafty supplies. ;)

Ok then, time for me to scoot. Have a good one!

I think you are enjoying the wonky look as you sure have mastered it. It looks like he was made to have a card just like this. I think it is adorable! I knew your Birthday is around the 20th and one of these years I will get the specific day correct. Happy Birthday my friend. Glad you had a great day. Hugs Lisa
