Elf Up and Away

Wow! I can't believe Christmas is almost here.  I finally finished my shopping, but still have a couple of things to put together.  And I have nothing wrapped yet.   I have made my last Delightful Thursday card for 2013 for Digital Delights.  But, I will return in January 2014 with a another new release for Delightful Thursday

For my card today I used Elf Up and Away.  What a cutie!  I paired him with paper from the Holly Jolly Digital Paper Pack.  Then I used my Copic Sketch markers to color him up like the paper.  My sentiment is from the Christmas Hugs Sentiment set.  All of these can be found at the Digital Delights Digi Shop.
