Just Us Girls #320 Color challenge!

Hello!  I love Saturdays, don't you?!! One reason is because it's a new challenge at Just Us Girls!  This week our host is Sharon and she has a very timely color challenge for us: Red, Green and Gold!
We hope you'll join in this week!  Please visit our BLOG for inspiration!! 

And now to my card for this week! I used My Favorite Things materials-Stamp set Birdie Brown's Santa's Elves and the Diagonal Cover-Up.
My card base is white, the gold paper is SUs gold glitter paper! It has the best sparkle! Almost a platinum golk, I think! I love, love it! The red card stock is from PTI-Poppy Red.
I colored the elf with my copics. I've been away from them for awhile and have been coloring with my Zig water color pens.  It was fun to use my copics again!! My crafty buddy, Lisa, put me on to Sandy Allnock a few weeks ago and I just watched the video of her coloring these elves. It's not terribly productive, but it is, oh so relaxing to watch someone else talk and color! Ahhhh! Anyway, I used the colors that Sandy did to color my elf.
This card will definitely go to a (lucky) retired teacher friend. She used to copy and color elf bodies, then she would take staff "headshots" to put on the elf bodies and post them in the faculty room during the holidays.  Each elf would have a speech balloon saying something hysterical and specific to their personality.  A new elf or two would appear each day and everyone would be laughing about them as it was all in good fun.  This friend is a very creative and talented writer!  She'll love the card, I'm sure!
Okay, better get going. Off to the pharmacy for some meds. to cure my sinus infection (diagnosed yesterday after work in an emergency dr. appt) and then to get some housework done while my morning energy lasts! Book club is here Monday night and I'm in a panic about that!
Please find the time to join in the fun challenge this week! We'd love to see your work!
Have a great weekend!
