Santa Baby

This fortnight the lovely Jingle Belles want to see inhabitants of the Norh Pole featured on our cards. Of course that includes Santa himself.

I still had this Santa sticker from the BasicGrey Eskimo kisses paper pack, so this seemed the right time to pull it out of my stash to create the following card.

I took inspiration from the following sketch:

Materials used:
Papers and Santa - BasisGrey Eskimo Kisses
Sentiment stamp - Your sentiments exactly
Ink - Aged Mahogany distress ink (Ranger's)
Scalloped circle die - Spellbinder's nestability
Button twine - Ladybug Crafts Ink, coloured with a Spectrum Noir marker
Ranger's Glossy accents for the pom pom on Santa's hat and to make the eyes pop

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Santa Baby
Deconstructed Sketch - Sketch #63
Christmas Card Challenges - #36 Use sth. new (optional; my Glossy accents are new)
BasicGrey - #74 Bright and bold
PaperPlay - #31 Layer it up
Craft Your Passion - #122 Anything goes
