Adams Christmas Elf

Evening all
It feels like it's been ages since I did a new post -there's just so much going on and I'm sure you are all the same!!!
I have my list ready for this week of 'things to do' and am going to have to tick them all off as I go as I am starting to panic about how little time there is left now.
One of my 'to do' things was make a card for my son and this year being 17 I just wasn't sure what to do-until I saw this little image which was a freebie from Digistamp Boutique!
My son works at our local Tesco's and on Halloween was the only person on the checkouts who dressed up (and boy did he look gruesome!!) His manager was well impressed and told him he can be the store's Christmas Elf this year -Adam's not sure if he was kidding or not lol but we keep making a joke of it so when I saw this little elf it just made me think of Adam.
I've coloured him with my promarkers and used some magazine freebie papers and some hessian which came from a garden centre. I punched a little tree and a snowflake and added a greeting to finish.

I would like to enter him into the following challenges:

Papercraft Junkies challenge 5 - Embellish it
