CHNC challenge 5: Santa

For challenge 5 on Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog I'd like you to include Santa on your Christmas card, or whatever you call Santa - Father Christmas, Papai Noel, Saint Nicholas ...

For my card I've used the sketch for this week's Jingle Belles challenge:
I'm also entering the card for Bah! humbug 4: an oldie but a goldie, Winter wonderland: my sentiments exactly, Sparkle creations Christmas 2011 week 8: no colouring and Christmas cards all year round for January: anything goes.

The sentiments papers were cut from Christmas gift bags and the Santa collage image (one of my favourite Christmas stamps) was stamped with versafine onyx black.

It's also for:

Fiskarettes Monday challenge: use a stamp
One stitch at a time 46: as you like it Christmas
Creative sketches: holiday challenge - Christmas
Stampin' B 95: use a song as your inspiration - Santa Claus is coming to town
Corrosive 100: reuse, reduce, recycle - the sentiments papers were cut from Christmas gift bags
Stampin' sisters for Christ 73: vintage style (the Santa stamp)
Creative Friday 36: vintage (the Santa stamp)
Craft your passion 42: use two patterned papers
Allsorts 88: saving nature - I recycled the Christmas bags
Crafty Emma 21:: bold & bright
Wild orchid 15: let's get sentimental
Penny's 45: anything goes
Cutie Sunday 128: anything goes
Woodware 11: anything goes
Let's ink it up 8: anything goes
