Santa in blue

It was Chris' turn to choose the theme for today's card for the Christmas Card Club and she chose 'Santa in blue'. I really wasn't sure what to do for this and then I hit on the idea of a silhouette of Santa and his sleigh and reindeer, so I found this free clipart picture on Microsoft Office.

I've used the sketch for Freshly made sketches 41:

 The idea of the Freshly made sketches challenges is to keep the card clean and simple, so that's what I've done, using two snippet pieces for the background, so this is my first wander into the playground for Pixie's crafty snippets 27, although I feel too poorly today to have a go on the swings - I need a quiet bench in the corner.


This is also for The paper players 102: Christmas in July.
