Here Comes Santa Clause

Wow, can you believe how fast time is flying by?! The radio stations here are already playing Christmas music, and the stores are putting out their Christmas decorations.

I'm already in the Christmas spirit and have been working on Christmas projects. Today, I have a cute little ornament to show you. The image is Santa Clause and he is from Shelly's Images. You can pick up Santa in store today only for a special sale price! Check out her other fabulous images, too, while you're there!

I made this ornament from an empty ribbon spool. I punched two scalloped circles and attached one to each side of the spool. Santa is colored with Promarkers, with glittery sparkle added to his cap and beard with a Clearstar gelly roll pen. I used some fancy red beaded ribbon trim from my stash (never used before now), and attached it under the edges of the ribbon roll, with glue dots. Santa was punched using a smaller circle, to fit inside the scallop. I found this awesome red, green & white braided trim at Hobby Lobby and thought it would be perfect to trim around the outside of the ornament. I used red plastic beaded christmas tree trim tied around the inside of the spool, to make the loop for hanging. I tried to fit this to the sketch at Card Positionin Systems, except mine is round instead of square.

I am entering this ornament in the following challenges:
