Freshly Made Sketches #9 - Santa

Hi Stampers,
Today's post is for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week created by fellow Australian Tui Nathan. I purchased the Santa stamp recently and was waiting for the opportunity to use it, thanks' Tui for a great sketch.  I have kept it Clean and Simple to let the image shine.  I stamped the Holly and Berries a couple of times with Wild Wasabi and Poppy Parade, cut them out and scored the leaves to give them more definition. The Whisper White Mat has been embossed with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder. 

Stamps: Flourishes Santa, I Believe, S/U's Petite Pairs
Card:  Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Poppy Parade
Ink:  Wild Wasabi, Poppy Parade, Adirondack Caramel,
Embellishments: Poppy Parade Stitched Ribbon,
Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix Polka Dot EB Folder, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dimensionals, Dble Sided Tape, Pinking Scissors
Thanks' for dropping by today.
