Santa Brings The Gifts

As promised a card – Wahoo!

Right, this card uses Jane’s wonderful sketch from The Whiff Of Joy Challenge Blog (what’s this? Two challenges in one week? – Shock!) and the super gorgeous Santa With Gifts Stamp is from Whiff Of Joy.

The papers are from the Basic Grey Wassail pack and a torn page from an old encyclopedia I picked up from a charity shop for 50p! I’ve distressed the papers with inks and my seam ripper.

Santa has been coloured with PrismaColor pencils and Sansodor.

The big flower has a yummy gold sequin centre from Prima and is available, along with lots of other colours, here.

Hope you are having a gift filled day

Edit – I’ve also added this to the Saturday Spotlight Challenge which is all about words this week! Thanks Vicki!
