Merry Monday # 42 - Vintage Santa

Hello Friends,
Today's post is for this weeks Merry Monday Sketch.  I used Designer papers to make my card including the Vintage Santa with some embossed Crumb Cake.  For the embossed strips I coloured the embossing folder with the Crumb Cake stamp pad and then embossed the banners.  Santa image was a tag and I punched him out and matted with a scallop circle.  All elements are sponged with ink.  The sentiment panels were cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelit and then cut back and pierced with the Essentials Pack.  I used the left over Designer Paper scraps for the inside of my card. We would love you to come and join us this week at The Merry Monday Challenge and don't forget to visit the other Design Team Members.
