Day 5- Smiling's My Favorite!

I absolutely love movie quotes. Sometimes I feel like my conversations are comprised of about 2% movie quotes. Needless to say, when I saw this quote from "Elf," I knew I had to use it.

For my card, I used the Cover a Card Thick and Thin (CC008) in red ink to create a peppermint looking background. I also included the new elf image (Jingle E11049) and the I like to smile (C3863) saying. I colored the elf with watercolor pencils and then blended everything with a Dove Blender pen.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog this week. I have enjoyed sharing the new IO release with you!
