Old World Santa

Good morning everyone! I'm here early, today, to show you a new project! I've decided to play in the12 Days of Christmas at Catch The Bug because I love love love Bugaboo Stamps! I'm not sure I will have enough time to complete all 12 days, as I have a hectic schedule the next two week. But, I at least want to play in as many days as I can.

My project, today is for Day 1 of the 12 Days of Christmas. For Day 1, we are asked to use a tree on our project.

I'm using the Sketch at Hanna and Friends for my card layout. This adorable image is Old World Santa, from Bugaboo Stamps. He is too too cute! Santa is colored with Promarkers. I've added glitter and sparkle to him with a clearstar gelly roll pen, and snow to the tree, with liquid pearls. I've used one of my favorite embellishments, metal brads, to embellish two of the corners. The brads have a beautiful Old World style to them, so they were just perfect to highlight Old World Santa. The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and has been punched with oval and scalloped oval punches. All papers are scraps from my stash, as are the brads.The image and sentiment are mounted with foam mounting tape for dimension.

I used this fun photo from Just Inspirational Challenges for my inspiration.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
