Santa Always Delivers

     Well, it's Friday again and QKR Stampede has a new challenge up.  We always have an Anything Goes theme but we also offer an optional theme if you choose to use it.  Our optional theme this week is "Christmas Cards."  I chose a delightful "Santa" from the QKR store and a simple but appropriate sentiment, "Merry Christmas."  Doesn't he make a fantastic, old-fashioned, Father Christmas?

     I used ProMarkers to color and a die from Spellbinders to cut the image.  I inked the edges of the sentiment piece after hand cutting it, then added it.  That whole piece went onto the front of a pre-made, red card base.

     For embellishment, I added a glittered, snowflake button and three shiny, glittery packages to the bottom of the card.  I love the gems and gold pearls on those packages.
