Vintage Santa

This is for A la card monkey 72 Christmas sketch:Background paper is from the My mind's eye Christmas glitter book. The Santa collage stamp is one of my favourites - stamped with stazon blazing red embossed with clear detail powder, other elements from my Christmas stash.

Everything I've used is a year old, so this is also for Christmas cards all year round for September.

The colour combo of chocolate, cream and cranberry is for Sparkle creations Christmas card challenge week 40.

Terrible photo because of poor light/use of flash.
