And laying a finger aside of his nose

I love this Santa from Stampers Anonymous and thought he would be great for today's sketch. I stamped him onto vanilla cardstock with riding hood red ink, then used a sponge with tea dye distress ink and a little more riding hood red to distress it. I cut/embossed it with Spellbindersd large deckled rectangles and matted it with the same shape. The dotted paper was cut/embossed with Spellbinders Curved Rectangles and ink distressed in the same way. The bg dp is also distressed before being mounted onto the riding hood red card. I added the striped grosgrain ribbon and there you have it. I hope you like it. Thanks for looking!

k that is adorable but i just have to say something about your title. when you dropped that card off Lucy wanted to know why he was picking his nose! haha but i told her he's just waving his finger saying "you better watch out you better not cry!" but seriously looks like he's about to do a farmers blow if you look real quick. i do love that card though. its so pretty.
