...SanTa'S CoaT...

I LoVeD this week's GReaT MoJo MONdaY sketch!

It SCReaMeD out for CHriSTMaS paper to me...so I decided to combine it with this week's CHriSTmaS CarD ChaLLenGE which was...anything goes...that sure made things easy!!   :)

I used a TaYLoReD EXpReSsionS set that I won a while ago in a Design TeaM try out...I LoVE this set...HanGin' OuT-At the NoRtH PoLE...  some of the images just CRaCK me UP...especially SanTa's PoLKa DoT BoXerS :)

enough babbling...here's my card...

The paper is a My Mind's Eye pad...12 DaYs of CHriSTMaS...I've used it A LOT...it's getting pretty sparse...I'm going to be SooOOoOoo sad when it's gone!! :(

Here's a closer view of Santa's SPaRkLy coat...I used Martha Stewart coarse glitter on this and used my paper piercer to scrape away the excess glitter on the outlines...just like I did on the Penny Black girlie hiding in the woods :)

The brad in the bottom left circle is from Doodlebug...it just happened to match perfectly...gotta LoVE that!

...and here's the envelope...fairly plain...but at least I didn't go right back to the vertical accent on the left side again...I'm saving that for next time ;)

Thanks for LoOKinG!!  :)
