A Clean and Simple Christmas!!!! part 1

Hi there!!!

I hope you are all safe and well after all the storms and bad weather... In here it has been ok. Very windy and snowy, but no other problems...  This morning we woke up to a white landscape... I really love snow, but I really hate walking on it!  I guess it is due to all the memories of me slipping and falling down in the icy and frozen snow...

Today I have two cards for you!

I'll show you the first card on this post, but don't forget to check my next post for the second card!

I decided to go for CAS style....

I used Little Elf Kit by Mo Manning from Mo's Digital Pencil. (I'm addicted to Mo's little cuties!!!!)
As I tried for a CAS style, I tried to keep it simple... the paper is from Holly Hobbie Christmas Joy Paper Collection (a free gift from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine). It's such a nice paper, like Candy Cane!

I coloured the little Elf in traditional Christmas colours: Red, green and gold!

I used: Slate, Red, Warm Grey 1, Burn Sienna for the hair; Almond, Ivory and Blossom for the face; Pear green, Moss and Apple for the trousers. 

Together with lots of chunky gold glitter for the star, and fine glitter for the furry white in the clothes... and voila! finished colouring!

I created the sentiment on my computer. 
And as a final touch, I used some red and white stripe and spots washi tape from The Santa's workshop by Helz Cuppleditch (Trimcraft).

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
