Santa is coming to town....

I'm back - and hopefully soon Santa will be too!

I am rather pleased with this effort - I've coloured Santa in inks using my aqua painter on watercolour paper. I love the colours. So elegant yet rustic. The patterned papers are digi downloads I purchased from Bizzy Becs new range - and I LOVE them. I've Kindyglitzed just about everything I could and added some jewels here and there and a touch of gold gel pen.

This card took a while to make - I started yesterday while my boys were napping and I was back at it this afternoon while they were sleeping again. Thankfully they are very tired and are still asleep! I'm just posting this card and I will have to go and get them up or they will be awake all night.

I am entering it in the following challenges:

Friday sketchers - sketch challenge #81
Just Magnolia - Make a card for someone special (this is for my parents)
Magnolia Down Under challenge #28 - Bedazzled
The Pink Elephant challenge # 43 - Colour Me Wonderful
Stamp Something - Glitzy
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Challenge #69

Phew!
