SANTA OR NO SANTA?

Good Morning Everyone,

It's time for a new challenge over at As You Like It and the theme is for you to showcase a project with your favourite of either Santa or No Santa on a Christmas card.



I tend to use a Santa image only when I have to, i.e. a DT card, or for a child's card so my favourite is "No Santa".  Most of the people I send cards to are probably too old for Santa cards anyway :) .

For my card I have used this sweet angel from LOTV and coloured her with copics. I have used some glitter on her wings and a sparkle pen on the stars. The sentiment is heat embossed and is also from LOTV.  The papers are from a First Edition Silent Night pad and the silver strip across the middle has been embossed with a linen embossing plate for extra interest, but that doesn't show up very well in the photo.  A doily cut in half and some sparkly gems finish it off.

I have used snippets on this, which are the two silver layers, the wonky square layer and the sentiment strip.

I would like to enter these challenges:

ABC Christmas - S for sparkle and T for texture
Allys Angels - Anything Goes
Pixie's Snippets Playground #360
Winter Wonderland - Use your fave embellishments (Glitter, Doilies are always useful when you're stuck and sparkly gems)
Simon Says Stamp Weds - Bling It On

I hope you can join in with this theme, not long till Christmas now so there should be lots of Christmas card making going on.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will find time to leave a comment.
