Santa with stocking

This is my card showing one of the new images you can find in the Bugaboo store today - a Santa that comes with different elements to put in his hand, here I chose the stocking.

I colored Santa with Promarkers, added glitter glue to the fur trimmings and frantage for snow. I also added two snowflake sequins and added glittery gems in the middle.

The layout is inspired by the April 2016 sketch over 52CCT:

I used a freebie paper and an embossed half circle. The Christmas sentiment was stamped.

This card is also for:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Pick a Previous 2016 Challenge (sketch #49)
Winter Wonderland - Frame It or Night Scene
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Anything Christmas/Holiday
Creative Knockouts - #171 Snow Much Fun!

Cute & versatile image, love the choice of the stocking he's holding. Like this sketch and of course love the gingham background. It's festive and yet at the same time, has a comforting traditional feel of Country Christmas from long ago. Love it! TFS & Merry Christmas.
