Santa is on his way.....


I had to make a last minute card and so decided to create a little scene and make it the main focus of the card.... I think Santa is taking a little breather here while out on his rounds.... Winking smile

 I've used 'Sitting Santa' from Digital Delights and the rest of the winter scene with bench and lamp is from Make it Crafty... I've added my own sentiment and graduated background for the sky before printing out... then just had to colour the whole scene and add snow and sparkle!!

Paper was freebie with magazine and is Marianne Design Scandinavian Winter... ribbon is Papermania Home for Christmas. I had to add the glitter quickly and there was quite a lot of snow... so used Quickie glue Pen and Crystal Snow glitter.  Added 3 red Gems to finish. It was a really quick card but I think it's sweet! Smile

I've used Copics... for the Reds, Greens and Browns... and Grey and Pearl White Spectrum Noirs.
