Today at Tuesday Throwdown we are thinking ahead. Our Challenge today is Christmas in July. Time to get a jump on the Christmas Cards. Our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish and I am using the little Elf Elsie image.

Using a striped scrap that is stitched in black with a strip reversed and mounted onto the MS snowflake punched strip. I have used foam dots to attach the image. A red zipper down the side for a little fun and a tag tied on with some gold ribbon and a little bell. WHY didnt I used silver to match the zipper you ask. Because I was so focused on the little bells on the little elfs shoes and finding a bell to match I totally forgot the zipper was silver until I started adding the gold dots. Its called too much going on and not paying attention to details ;)

The team and our GD Debbie have some great cards so be sure to stop by for a visit.

Entering Challenges:
Paper Sundaes: Stitching
Catch the Bug: Anything goes
One Stop Craft: Tag you're it
Our Creative Corner: 4th of July or Christmas in July

Elf Elsie is a real cutie and I like a mix of gold and silver. You are so clever with the zipper, something I would have never thought to do. Great job, Davi!!

What a cutie Elsie is! I'm amazed at all the fun ways you added in texture. I never would have thought to use a zipper that way, and it looks great! I think the gold and silver go terrific together, too. Great card!
