From Christmas to Butterflies

The current challenge at Tiddly Inks Challenge is to create a card that includes a circle (has no corners, squares or rectangle backing allowed.)  I used one of the sweet images from the elf coloring pages that were a freebie in December 2017. Cute the ornament from a scrap of patterned metallic wrapping paper. I wanted the playful elf to take center stage, literally, so I only colored him and used grey tones for the background images.
