Christmas Chaos #1 - Here comes Santa

This is day 1 of a funfilled week with daily Christmas themed challenges over at Catch the Bug. You can win prizes - digis and Guest designer spots - by participating in one, some or all challenges this week - head over to Catch the Bug for more information.

For today we have the theme of SANTA. I chose to play with Santa Stocking Sack - you can find it here. I used my Promarkers and a white and silver gel pen to color him up and I used my snow pen on his beard.

I went for a rustic style, using a gingham patterned paper from Maja Design and one with Christmas sentiments in different languages from Panduro.
I cut the banner using stitched dies from Dienamics. I decorated the top part with a die cut pine branch with glitter, a silver bell, brown string and some red berries.

This card is also for these challenges:
Deep Ocean Challenge - #118 - Santa is Coming to Town
Fab 'n' Funky - #284 Santa Claus is Coming To Town
Inky Impressions - #278 Traditional Christmas Colors
Daring Cardmakers - Elemental Inspiration

I'm really enjoying your Christmas Chaos series... although there's nothing chaotic about what you do! You've definitely achieved the rustic look with a Nordic feel, of course. All the elements work beautifully together.
