Dancing Santa

I used one of the fab sketches at Christmas Stamping All Year Long for this Christmas card. It seemed just perfect for Elizabeth Dulemba's image of 'Dancing Santa' (coloured with Promarkers). I went for traditional Xmas colours & the shining star was glitzed using Crafter's Companion silver Spray'n'Sparkle. (Am I the only one that has difficulty with those sprays with the nozzles clogging?)

I repeated the basic layout for the inside of the card too adding a sentiment from Bird's Cards.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
