Secret Santa project Make it Crafty

Hey everybody!

Last month I entered a Secret Santa swap on the Facebook page of Make it Crafty. I had to make a card for Rita Edwards, a talented fellow crafter who lives in California USA. This is the card I made.
The image that I used is Jinkles the Elf and it's my the first Make it Crafty image that I used.
A close up of Jinkles, as always colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced.
And a close up of the pretty flowers and berries that I used from Wild Orchid Crafts. With my card I enclosed a bag of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and a bunch of the berries and pine cones that I used on this card plus a pretty butterfly die by Noor!, hoping that since Noor! is Dutch she wouldn't have that die yet.
And a picture of the little pieces used to create the image.

Hope you like my card and glad to say it finally arrived at Rita Edwards so that I get to show it to you guys. The postal services had me worried for a while because it should have arrived on November 22nd but it never arrived at her house so had to fill in missing package forms. But the parcel turned up again thankfully!!

Hope you have a great day or what's left of it (in my case).
