'Appy 'n' 'Elfy!

I had my Personal Impressions Christmas elf stamps out again, I always enjoy colouring these cheerful chaps.
I used Promarkers for colouring again, this time to match these lovely Papermania Tulip papers that I got in the Hobby Craft sale for the bargain price of £2.  They have a very nice linen texture and lots of them could be used all year round, I teamed them with some kraft.  The sentiment came from the same stamp set as the image.  I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set on the red mat to give it a holly edging.
To finish off I added my usual ribbon and bow, some stars made with Xcut dies and a large handful of clear gems in three sizes.
 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
