Krafty Santa

Well I'm still running around trying to catch up with myself and I only got round to making this card last night. Winter Wonderland have a challenge theme of red + white + kraft, so after having finally tried blue + white + kraft I thought I should try this combo as well.

This is a LOTV stamp from their new christmas range called Santa and I just had to have him. I was going to use a different stamp but it just didn't work so I got this coloured up with Promarkers and a touch of gold gel pen and kept the colours to match the red and kraft. I used a kraft base card and matted the image onto kraft as well. The background paper is from Marianne Design and the snowflake is Marianne Design LR0185. To finish off I added a couple of pearls from 'The Hobby House' and added a touch of Stickles to the fur and snowflakes on the image.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Red, White and Kraft'
Lili's Little Fairies challenge 'Christmas in August'
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'Anything Goes with Pearls)
ABC Christmas challenge 'P is for...' (pearls, presents)
Deep Ocean challenge 'Christmas in July'
Lili of the Valley Monthly challenge 'Make it Festive' (my 2nd entry)
The Hobby House challenge 'Christmas' (my 2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)

We're off to my Dad's this afternoon so I shall be back this evening with my DT card for the PCJ challenge.
