Bombshell Hump Day Hop #13 *Naughty or Nice* ~

Hey all!  Sorry, I'm getting this up a bit later than I had first's that whole not adhering to a schedule thingy! lol The Bombshell ladies are at it again with a new pin up girl - Ms December.  Her challenge to us this month is:
"Ready to be "Awfully Good"? Santa is looking over his list to see who is naughty and who is nice. So lets send him our best project expressing which list we should be on.
Your Challenge is to create a project showing which side of the list you belong on. The Naughty List or the Nice. Make those Bombshell stamps shine and give Ole St Nick a reason to smile."
Since I've already done Naughty, I thought I'd stretch myself and try to be Nice! 
I made the little pirate wench from A Pirate's Life into one of Santa's elves!  I just drew some lines along her legs to look like stockings.
Here's a close up

This card actually used a lot of masking because it is 4 stamps - the wench elf, the bear, the hat and the pile of presents.  All the accessories are from a *must have*Bombshell set, Holiday Accessory.  Even if you don't have Bombshell stamps, you need this set!  After coloring, I realized I probably only needed to mask the bear!  Oh well!  I got to try out the Eclipse masking tape that I bought forever ago, so that's good!  The sentiment is computer generated and reads 'A little elf told me...You made the Nice list!  Merry Christmas'

Before adding all the front pieces to the card, I measured a gift card and cut some slits.  They're completely covered on the front of the card.  Some swirly flourishes stamped along the edges of everything and some distressing finished these cards off!  Now bop along to the rest of these Bombshells and show them some love! Oh, and if you're interested, I have a StampInsanity set for blog candy in the post below this!  Have fun!!  ~alyssa
