Christmas Ornament - Elf Lady

The elven lady ornament, all painted up.  It was designed by me and cut out by Jean, my friend's mom, who is a wonderful woodworker.  She has several lovely intarsia pieces in her home that I would love to steal away, made with her own hands. 

I ended up choosing green because I pulled out a lovely forest green out of the Bin o' Paints.  I was very proud of how this ornament turned out, but as Jean pointed out the green is the same colour as the Christmas tree and the lady is completely camouflaged among the branches.  In future years I think she will have to hang in my bathroom.
