4.5.6.Shut The Door

I'm back with the next three days for Beccy Muirs A Month of Holiday Cards Challenge.

Day 4 was to use the letter D.
I chose to use Decoration  and Die cuts.
Bit of tongue in cheek here as Bronson and  Beaker could only manage to decorate a branch with a few baubles but this image was already coloured up and on my desk so needs must if I'm to ever  catch up! It is also time for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our next makes. Rita chose the theme of Decoration or Gifts so hope this passes muster.
The image is Bronson and Beaker Branch from my Polly Craft Bundle. Coloured using my Graph'it pens. Die cuts are Spellbinders Marvellous Squares, Tonic Studio  and Memory Box . The snowflake paper is a freebie from Making Cards Magazine Dec 2016. Sentiment sticker from my stash.

Entering this card into the following challenges:
A Month of  Holiday Cards Challenge #  Day 4 Letter D. 
Cute Card Thursday #555 Snowflakes.
Angie's Digital Stamps Challenge #26 Anything goes+ optional twist christmas.
Crafting By Designs #Anything goes.
Love To Scrap #115 Anything goes.
Sheepski Designs #20 Anything christmas.

Day 5 was a Colour Challenge using the colour pallette below.

I found the correct colours amongst my Graph'it and Promarker pens and coloured this digi image 
from Just Inklined called 'Letter from Santa'. The design paper is a magazine freebie which had some  of the colours in it and I thought the theme  went well with the image . The silver sentiment was from my stash.

Day 6 was to use the letter E.
I chose to use Elves  and Easel Card.
Ok so technically they are Gnomes but hey the Elves were all really busy and anway  have you seen the prices they charge for a photo shoot now days  !!!!!!
The snowflake background paper was a freebie from Making Cards Christmas Edition 2018 and the pre- coloured gnomes  are from a sheet in the same set called Nick The Gnome.  Silver sentiment from my stash.

Card folded flat for easy postage.

Your description of the last card made me laugh. The elves are very busy I guess the gnomes are temporary help! All are wonderful cards.

These cards are lovely and you have been so busy!! The first one is so cute with those soft colours and the sweet bear! Love the paper with the golden snowflakes!
Perfect colours to match the challenge palette for the second one and it's a lucky thing that you found that dp from a magazine! That Santa seems very busy too :D
My favourite is the last card, such lovely folding and images! The blue paper with the falling snow makes a dreaming design! LOVE those elves/gnomes, how cute and fun!

You've certainly been busy Valery, well done on catching up with these three fabulous cards. I love the blue and kraft on the first one, what a great colour combination, especially with the pops of red. You did a good job with the colour challenge, your Santa card looks fabulous.
I love the images on your final card, those little gnomes are so adorable! The snowman and his little birdie friend are cute too.
