'Tis the Season

I had this super grumpy elf already coloured on my desk when I saw the September Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers. It's Anything Goes with the option of Elf. I'm sure this grumpy elf is from Mel Jen's digis, sadly closed and I love the digis I have in my files.

I cut the image and the scalloped layers with Elizabeth Craft Designs stitched rectangles and scalloped rectangles, the dark green layer is dry embossed  with random sequins, (Stampin'up)
The small sentiment is from a package that has 6 already inked stamps (only black ink) I bought at Winners and have no idea who made them.

What else would a grumpy elf say than "Bah Humbug"
I used some green stickers to make the sentiment, normally I would have printed it out on the computer but at the cottage there is not a printer, and really didn't think the card totally through.

I am enter in this in:

Happy Little Stampers ~~ Anything goes (option of Elf)

Since it is getting late in the month I need to enter this card in:

Rudolph Days ~~ September

ABC Christmas Challenge ~~ T is for Texture 
Background is dry embossed.

I normally try to make one card for each Christmas challenge I find but this month it has been very busy and I'm still going to the cottage while the weather is good, it will be soon time to drain the water, turn the hydro off, put the phone and internet on vacation until SPRING.

Thanks for joining me here today and I'm still building my Holiday Stash.

Your cranky elf image is so cute. You have made this up into a great card. The sentiment inside the card is so perfect for this image!

Thanks for taking part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge.
