A Visit From Santa

I am a little late uploading this card to my blog.... Life gets so busy sometimes....
I made this for Splitcoast Stampers Virtual Stamp Night challenge NOV10VSNA - challenge to make a Christmas card with Non traditional colours - no RED and no Greens... I used Kraft, Brown and Blues... I purchased this fabulous vintage Santa image from Inkadinkado at Michael's earlier this year for only $5.00 - how lucky was that!!!!!
Inked up the stamp with Stampin Up's basic brown ink, stamped onto water colour paper and then clear embossed. Only coloured his cheeks with Blush Blossom Marker. Matted image with Kraft and Not Quite Navy card stock. The Dp is from My Minds Eye - open sleigh. I crumpled up the Dp to distress it, matted it with Kraft and Not Quite Navy. Sponged and distressed all edges, Sewed edges of both panels. Tied ribbon around base panel, popped up Santa panel . I am really pleased with how this turned out..

I am also entering this into the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge #C4C63 - to make a Christmas card or project....

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy stamping and creating,

Hugs.. Pat
