Hey Santa Baby!!

This week at Crafty Creations we have a fab sketch from Jeanet. I think you'll agree this sketch leaves plenty of room for you to use your own creativity & embellishments . . . . . nice & simple . . . . . my kind of sketch!!
The addition to the challenge is to use a stamped image & some ribbon or lace.

This is one of my favorite Sugar Nellie Christmas stamps, isn't she just the cutest?? I've coloured her using Copics & added lots of stickles to her hat, coat & boots for that bit of Christmas sparkle.

The cardstock is Stampin Up & the paper is from a Dovecraft basics pack. I've mounted Mrs Santa on a circle which has been embossed using the snowflakes folder which has then been mounted on card embossed with the Snow Sledding folder.

The poinsettia is cut using the Marianne Creatables Straight Ponsettia which is my favorite die at the moment & the snowflakes are a Quickutz die. All finished off with a little bit of bling.

I've used some lace to make the little snowflake which I've snipped inbetween the points & glued round a small card circle finished off with a little snowflake eyelet in the centre.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges

Papertake Weekly Challenge - to chose a challenge from the last 3 years. I've chosen Christmas Crackers from November 2009.
