I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #45 - Santa

Whooooo..... Hooooo.... only 10 days now til the real Santa will be flying through the night skies delivering all those lovely gifts around the world!    This is such a magical time of the year. 

This week's theme over on the I ♥ Promarkers challenge blog is 'Santa' - and that could be humerous, modern, vintage, your Santa can be any style you wish.  The prize this week is $15 to spend at Simon Says Stamp our Sponsor, and we hope you'll be posting up your entries on the blog for a chance to win.

My DT card for this challenge was a joy to create.  I do so love this Sugar Nellie Santa stamp, I've had him in my stash for a few years and he always comes out to 'play' every year.  I can't help myself smiling while I'm colouring him, he is such a jolly fellow.  He's coloured with Promarkers of course, with a little Spica Glitter pen on his lantern.  I cut him out and added him over a panel cut and embossed with a Marianne's Designs folder (I've collected all the tiny cut out stars as I intend to find a use for them sometime!).  The other white layers were embossed with various Cuttlebug folders and layered up on some rich gold pearl card.  The sentiment is by Magnolia and the holly leaves were cut using a Martha Stewart punch, with the berries formed using my Waco Pearl Pen in red.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my card today and that you'll be entering this week's challenge.  Thanks for dropping by, it would be great if you left me a comment and let me know if you like my Santa, I love reading all your kind comments.
