May Your Days Be Merry & Bright

We have reached the midway point in our Vibrant Colours challenge over on the ABC Christmas Challenge and I am back to share some more inspiration with you. I hope that you have your sunglasses handy as I am not sure that I have ever made a Christmas card so bright before.
This cute little gift wrapping elf was just perfect for the challenge as she almost begs to be coloured in bright and cheerful colours. I have matched the colours that I have used to the brightest papers that I could find from MME and paper pieced the gift to tie it all together. As most embellishments would probably get lost on a card this bold and bright, I went through some past sketched and chose a layout with a strong focal point allowing the image to really be the centre of attention on this one and keeping the embellishments to a minimum.
I hope that you will join us for the challenge. Be sure to stop by the main challenge blog and see the gorgeous creations from the rest of the DT.
Happy Crafting!
I would like to enter the following challenges
