Santa Claus is coming to town

Yes, Santa Claus is coming to Town. I am so excited and honoured to be this weeks High Hopes Challenge Hostess.
Challenge #54 over on the High Hopes Blog is all about Santa and boy oh boy are there some terrific cards. Click Here to take a look.
By participating in the challenge you are in for a chance to win this great stamp . All details are on the High Hopes Blog With a new prize and challenge every week.




(The stamp is a lot bigger than this;
here is just a sneak peek)





Now for my card. I just love this Santa, he is so nice to work with.


I stamped Santa in Black Stazon and coloured him with Prismacolor Pencils then blended with Odourless Mineral Spirits.
The base card and the lighter green layers are Bazzill Criss Cross and the designer paper is the 'Peppermint Christmas' range from S.E.I.  The printed paper is just beautiful, although you can't see the stripes have metallic foil, the snowflakes are embossed, just gorgeous.
The card was finished off with some Merry Christmas Ribbon and some emerald sprinkles.

Until Next Time
Inking of you All
Michelle
