I chose the Flourishes Stamp set "Santa~ I Believe" for today's blog hop card. (Available at Mark's Finest Papers) He is stamped with brown ink on Mark's Finest Papers (MFP) Snow Storm Smooth and colored with copics. The image was layered on Ripened Tomato and Tan Line. The DP is from my scrap bin. The layout is from this weeks Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #51. I used a MS punch on the corner of the image panel and added a couple silver glittery brads. The Ivy on Santa's hat is cut from the background DP. His white hair and beard was given a coat of Gare Innocence paint. It has sparkles in it but the photo does not show this well. Make sure and visit each of the DT blogs listed below and leave comments. They have some fabulous creations for you to see! And that blog candy is waiting on one lucky person!!
