Christmas Card with Santa

For this card I haven't used any design papers. I've used kraft, red and white paper. The white paper is embossed with a star pattern, and I've used glimmer mist, but you can't see it from this photo.
I've used gingham ribbon, a Santa image, a digi for the hollies and stickers for the stars. The digi images have been colored with Promarkers and red glitter glue.

I enter this card into these challenges:
1) Going Grey With Scrap-Creations - Pick 3 (Red, Glitter, Embossing)
2) Paperminutes - #233 No Design Paper
3) Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge -Tic Tac Toe (Red, Glitter, Santa)
4) Pattie's Creations - Embossing
5) Nutcrafters - #26 Christmas
6) Christmas Card Challenges - Stars
7) Christmas Crafting -Traditional Christmas Colors
8) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Nice card! I wonder if there'll be a lot of snow this year. We were ripped off last year, but I did enjoy the mild winter temperatures!

Lovely Christmas card Pia,Glimmer mist is lovely to use but I too have problems of it showing up in photos/ The Kraft, red and white are stunning over the white embossed stars, lovely embossing folder. Oh I wish for a white Christmas this year but unless I go over your way I guess it will be a hot summer again....x
