Santa - I believe

Creative Inspirations has another great challenge this week, Use the colors Brown, Sage and Cream. I really liked making a card for this challenge cause I tried to incorporate those colors into a Christmas card. I love using non traditional colors for Christmas. Sometimes just using Red and Green can get boring.

The image I used for this card is becoming my favorite Christmas image. It is from Flourishes and the set is called Santa - I believe. I didn't go crazy with the coloring on this image. It is so beautiful on it's own that I didn't feel like it needed a lot. I stamped the image in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I added stickles to the areas that should be white and Crystal Effects to his glasses.

Copics used:
Skin: E11, E00, R20
Holly: G05, R29
Glasses: YR23
Eyes: B01

Challenges I'm putting this card in:
Delightful Challenges - Christmas
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle
Paper Players - 1 DP, Something punched & a sentiment
The Crafty Pad - Christmas
Craft your Passion - Glitter & Sparkles
Papertake Weekly - Sparkly Bright
