Vintage Santa

I've had the day off work today - had planned to make many cards and spend lots of time blogging, that didn't go exactly to plan. I went to the post office, popped by a beauty salon and I've cooked! Something I usually hate doing as I always make a mess and over cook all food! I made a stew - from scratch and with fresh vegetables - well, as fresh as they get this time of year - and it tasted delicious, I'm very proud of myself...
I also made this vintage card. No stamps used! The patterned DPs are from Maja Design, I'm not sure of the Santa image. I attached the image to a die cut oval (Spellbinders Opulent Ovals) and I added some cheese cloth behind the oval. The Merry Christmas sentiment is made with a die from KaBoks. The little red polka dot button was part of the advent calender gift I received today. I machine stitched with white thread around the edges

This card is for these challenges:
1) Craft Room Challenge - Vintage Christmas
2) Unstampabelles - Christmas (no stamps!)
3) Christmas Card Challenges - #1 No Stamping
4) Sugar Creek Hollow - Vintage Christmas
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

I love the way you have made the card look rustic with the DP and the stitching yet thrown in the oppulence of that wonderful die.
