A Little Bit of Christmas in August

 So I had the honor of being the Feature Winner of CTD #653, which means I'm the Guest Star Stamper for this week's CTD #655.  The colors we are working with are Pink, Gray and Mint Green.  

My first thought when I saw the picture Susie sent me was a baby card, but I don't really have any baby stamps.  Then I thought, why not a whimsical Chrsitmas card.  I went right to my MFT stash and grab a NBUS (never been used stamps--stash in my case).  Of course the elf needed to be colored.  This is where my struggle began.  I have most of the green Copic markers, but none of them really screams mint green.   I even tried to match my markers to SU's Mint Macaron CS, but even that didn't go well.  I think I ended up coloring 4 or 5 elfs until I came to the conclusion that G00 is the only color green that came close to Mint Macaron card stock.  I still think he looks a bit neon. I finished off the card with using a glitter pen on the Christmas lights, the Christmas ornament and the jingle bell on his hat.  I love how the card turned out.  I just wish the elf would have looked a bit more like the Mint Macaron cs I used.
