GCC1215 - Happy Birthday Elf

It's Monday, so that means a new challenge has been posted over at the Outlawz. This week the theme this week is to use sheet music or some sort of music.

The Sponsor this week is Decosse's Dynamite Doodles and I used the neat music paper background from a set called Familiar Refrain. Lisa has a wonderful selection and also has a challenge this week over on her blog. It is an inspiration challenge so hop on over and enter. Since I chose a background image, I could use any other focal image I wanted. I used one of my new stamps I purchased when I was at a Copic Boot Camp. 

I used a birthday sentiment because I have two December birthdays and I do not have a Christmasy (yes...I'm making up words again) sentiment small enough that is in a straight line. I'm not sure which person will get this. I intended to send it to my grandma for her 91st Dec 29th birthday, but it's 1/2 inch thick. I used pop dots on the main panel, the package, and thicker ones to pop up the elf. Hmmm. I may have to change my mind and send her another one and hand deliver this to my crafty friend instead of using my next week's image I chose with her in mind. I guess I'll have to see. Update: Sending this one to my grandma after all. I gave the GCC1222 Angel card to Cara. I turned it inside out so hopefully it won't be as thick that way and hopefully grandma turns it the right way when she opens it. I'm sure she will.
