Vintage Santa

Hi, welcome to my blog and thanks for looking. First off, I want to thank the ladies at Midnight Madness for putting these sketches out there each week for everyone. This card was made for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge over at The sketch is pictured above, but it had to have a Christmas theme to it. I love the dark colors and the vintage look. The base of the card in this picture has a blue tint to it. It is actually a dark green. I am not sure why my camera keeps picking up the blue. The supplies used for this card are Gina K cardstock in green, cranberry, and gold , Crafty Secrets santa, Anna Griffin Happy Holidays tag, gold snowflake charm, ribbon, MS branch punch, Prima pointsettia and rik rak, red rhinestones, and a red spica pen for the holly on his hat. Please feel free to leave a comment at anytime and again, thanks for looking! Have a nice day!
