Warm Wishes Elf Kaylee for Penny's

It's Wednesday everybody!  Yeah!  I am excited because tonight is my daughter's winter chorus concert.  I am ready to listen to some holiday music!  I have a super large gift tag to share today because there was a slight printing error.
Ever had one of those days when you are in a rush to get things done and you are not giving your full attention to every detail?  I had one of those with this image.  I hit print and when I turned to get it off the printer tray I realized it was a full page instead of asking for a smaller size.  I did not want to waste it so I decided to make a huge tag with it.  I think it will work nicely on a gift for Christmas. 
This little lady is Elf  Kaylee from Some Odd Girl as the are sponsoring us at Penny's for our Merry Christmas challenge.  Come on by and join us because we have two prizes up for grabs!

I started with a piece of new leaf  cardstock  that I layered with a recycled piece of corrugated cardboard and a light blue textured pattern paper.  I added a strip of lace that has a hint of blue along the top.  Before adhering my image, I checked for placement on the journal bracket.  I stamped the sentiment on it and then put glue on the top of  my image and placed as desired.  Then I slid the journal bracket under and went back and glued the rest of the image down.  I hope this makes sense. :-)

Amy, she is adorable. Cute tag too, I'm sure your daughter would love her on a gift. I hope you have a blessed time at your daughters Choir concert, my son was in Choir last year, and we loved all the music. I was in choir all through school too, and loved it. Sending a hug.
