Santa Claus

Hey Peeps!
How are we all? I am getting a little sad as my 2 weeks is nearly at an end but I still have Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday to enjoy so lets not get too upset until Sunday LOL
I have made a card today with a wood mounted stamp I fell in love with as soon as I saw it & it was one of those HAVE to have it - but never really use it purchases! Well I was looking for something else when I re-discovered it today & I had to ink it up ASAP!
I have used green & white cardstock from my stash.  The paper is Country Companions cut into ribbon ends & layered onto the white card, I made a border with a Martha Stewart doily lace punch & some ribbon.  I added the greeting, which is a rub on from Hobby Craft, I added some green jewels & then added the gorgeous Santa image which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink & colored with my Spectrum Noirs.  I popped a bow & tada card done! I must say I do like how it turned out I did have jingle bells to add with twine but they wouldn't thread through the holes - twine was too thick so I must get more bells! LOL
The colors I used for my image are:
Santa's Face: FS1 FS2 FS3 Cheeks: FS6 PP3
Santa's Hat: CR11 DR5 DR7
Holly DG2 DG3 Berries CR11 DR5 DR7
Beard BG2 BG3 BG5 Blender
Hat Fur IG2 IG5 IG7
I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland Challenge - Santa Claus
I hope you all have a FAB Thursday - See you all soon! x x x
