Have an Elfin'great Christmas!

OMG I am exhausted!!  I have spent the whole day decorating the school for the Christmas fair tomorrow and the this evening seting up my stall!!  Wish me luck I could do with raising some cash for Christmas!!

My card for today is a Christmas card.

I have used freebie backing papers from a paper craft magazine and layered them on green card.  A border punch has created the effect on the front panel of this Z fold card. I have used an xcut circle die and a nesties scalloped die to create the cicle panels and a snowflake embossing folder on the centre circles.

The 2 images are from 'make it crafty ' christmas collection. I have coloured them with pro markers
