The Big Guy!

Good morning one and all and welcome to the Make My Monday challenge which is... ta da!!
Santa .... The Big Guy
Here's my DT card... which is meant for some one who likes tradition at Christmas....
Backing paper: Websters Page: Snow flakes and Feathers...... I love these papers. I cut around some of the berries so that one corner of the main image slipped underneath.
Main stamp image: La Blanche. Stamped onto cartridge paper then  onto EcoArtBoard but this time focusing on Santa's face.
Poinsettia: Creative Expressions: Holly Set.
Distress Stickles
versafine: Onyx Black
Distress Inks: Festive Berries and Mowed Lawn used as water colours. Antique Linen on the artboard.
Prima Trim:  cut into strips and frayed. loose pieces used for the bow.
 Snow flake from stash.
 This is an unusual size base card 16.5 square made  by me ... I'll have trouble finding an envelope... I know, I know, I could make one but I fail miserably at making envelopes!! Good job I wont be posting it :)
Isn't it a "Jolly" Santa image, hope you can pick out the Stickles. I'd  coloured the sides of the art board with festive berries then when I added the stickles it bled onto the top but I liked it... I'd already lightly coloured Santa's hat.
Pop across to MMM a to see the other inspiration provided by the DT and please do join in. We love seeing all the different takes on our themes.
have a great week
