Christmas Card with a Rosette

I just love playing with sketches
these days, and for this card I used the sketch over at Try Stamping On Tuesday as inspiration. I also used the optional twist of adding plaid.
I thought the theme over at Jingle Belles - use inches or Twinchies - would be great with this layout. I actually believe this Santa image, cut out from a Maja Design paper, is something in between. But if the aim is to use something small I think it fits the bill!

I attached the cut out image to a die cut circle of kraft and a rosette made with a Tim Holtz die. The plaid DP is from Maja Design, the others are not, but I can't remember any origins as I used scraps to make the panel of paper strips. For the sentiment I used a stamp from Panduro. I used brown embossing powder. I also added some brown pearls from my stash.
I machine stitched the strips of paper and around the plaid paper, as well as the panel I made for the inside of my card.


This card is for these challenges:
1) Try Stamping On Tuesday - Sketch #151 and Twist Add Plaid
2) Jingle Belles - Have Yourself a Merry LITTLE Christmas
3) ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
