I have the honour of showcasing one of the wonderful Christmas images from Paper Nest Dolls today!

It's called Elf Emma With Lights.  I've used the digi version, but if rubber stamps are your thing, you can buy her in that version too!

I have coloured the image with markers, and used a Poppy Crafts die to cut it out.  I used the same set of dies to cut out the paper behind the image and the sentiment, and just drew in the stitch marks where I had to alter the die cut.

My papers are from the DCWV O Christmas Tree pack.  I've added a strip of lace and flowers by 49 and Market, and Little Birdie.  The little Christmas lights popping out around the flowers are from a Create Christmas craft string of lights.  I've just cut them loose from their string.  I've also added in a few Tim Holtz Metallic Droplets.

Paper Nest Dolls have a fun Inspiration Group on Facebook, where you can see adorable Dolls all month long.

I'd like to thank Christine for inviting me to Guest Design for her this month.  I'll pop back soon with another adorable Paper Nest Dolls Christmas card.

Thanks so much for popping in for a look!
