Christmas Card With Attitude!

Hi, today's offering is another Grumpy Gretchen Elf from Digi's With Attitude! This is December's Freebie & I think she's fab! I was meeting Mum & Dad today & wanted to get their card done. I had coloured her up  with my Promarkers already & printed off the card & greeting, so I just had to pull it all together!

 I decided she would look good on an easel card!
The base card is from a download by Elaine Hayhoe over at Cardmaking Downloads! She is one of my fav designers at the moment & is quite new to designing on a commercial basis although she has been designing for her own creations as long as I've known her! The dotty paper is by Elaine also!
The sentiments are computer genterated & the text is in a free font called Andy!
I added some silver ribbon from my stash & a build your own pointsetta also from my stash. I added a bit of glitz to her hat dress & belt as well as the brad in the centre of the flower with my Diamond Sparkles!

For the stop I used more of the printed card & the silver ribbon, which I attached with foam pads, to give the depth!
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges!

Office Party Blog Hop Christmas Card!

I followed the Digi's With Attitude!/Drunken Stampers 1st combined Design Team  Office Party Blog Hop yesterday! Oh what fun I had along the way! It's well worth a look at all the DT cards! At the end of the hop, you're asked to enter a card in the theme of the hop or for someone in the office!!
Here's mine!

Poor Gretchen has turned up at the Office Party & is the only one in Fancy Dress! Did someone play a little joke on her or did she mishear someone saying "Wear a fancy dress!" (This Digi is free this month & you can get her here!)
I needed it in a hurry as I have to give it to one of the girls at work, who gave me a card & pressie today & after tomorrow, I won't see her again until well into next year!! I also have my neice staying as she's having difficulty travelling to work in the arctic conditions we're having right now!
For that reason I decided to keep it fairly simple. I used some shiny papers as a matt & to punch out the little Christmas trees too! I did want to use snowflakes but have leant out my snowflake punch & didn't have anything in the colours I wanted! I coloured Gretchen with promarkers & added some Diamond Sparkles to liven up the furry bits! I hope you like her!

I would also like to enter this card into the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog Sparkly Christmas
