Bugaboo's Christmas in July - Day 1

You will see lots of Christmas cards coming from this week as I aim to participate in all of  Bugaboo's yearly Christmas in July challenges, which started yesterday. There are 7 in all, and for the first day we were to make a card with a Santa on it. Since I'm a slow cardmaker it's quite a challenge for me:)
I used 52CCT's sketch as inspiration for my design. Santa is colored with Promarkers and I added loads of gold glitter glue to the star. The sentiment is heat embossed. I used sequins and pearls from my stash.
I kept the design clean, it's a A2 size card that will fit neatly into an envelope for postage.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Catch The Bug - Show us your Santa (Day 1)
2) 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - July Blog Hop + Sketch
3) Winter Wonderland - Three of Three (Sequins and Rhinestones)
4) Addicted to Stamps and More - #103 Holiday
