I Believe ... in Santa

Even though the colors are certainly a non-traditional choice for Christmas, I like the down-to-earth feel of the card.  The silhouette Santa image from the I Believe set is inked in Sunset and then 'rolled' in Brown Bag for some dimension at the edges.  Sparkles added to the snowflakes on Santa's bag are actually blue to match the Indian Corn Blue background. 

Once again, I combined the Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO163) with the Heart 2 Heart Challenge  for the week, which is to use the colors Sunset, Indian Corn Blue, and Brown Bag.

  7. I love the snowflake stamping you did on the background of your card. It is getting me in the Christmas card making spirit. This week I will be starting my Christmas cards, so I think I may have to make some with snowflakes--just love them!
