A Santa Christmas Card


Don't adjust your monitors.   I know its May and yes you are seeing a Christmas card.

I had the sketch out for the May card at "Stick It Down" and I knew I would be able to use some of my scraps for the background papers for it.    (Love using up my scraps) so I started looking thru all the patterned paper scraps I have in a drawer by my desk and saw this Christmas tree paper and knew it would be perfect to cut into strips and then mat and make my card to go with the sketch.  
I had this Santa already made from a swap from last year so it was perfect to add as my main embellishment.

You can see the sketch below and then go to  "Stick It Down" to read all about the challenges for May, a card, a single page and a double page.
