One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #1 - Santa's Hug

Dear Friends,
As you might have noticed on my blog sidebar I have been invited by Shery Russ to join her Inaugral Design Team for the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge.  I think I might find it quite challenging at times, but I like a challenge and I am excited to be showing you my card for our first challenge.
The format for the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge is " Anything goes each week with an Optional Twist to use Red".   If you enter cards with the twist, you get an entry into the monthly random drawing for a prize. 1 card with the twist = 1 entry; players can enter as many times as they want. Check out the Guidelines for the challenge here.
For my card today I have used a card base, stamped my image and coloured with Blendabilities.  I added Washi Tape along the bottom edge, scored either side of my sentiment and finished off with some sequins and crystal effects on Santa's glasses.

Stamps: Penny Black - Holiday Hugs, S/U's Sassy Salutations
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black
Blendabilities: Cherry Cobbler, Blush, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Wild Wasabi, Basic Grey, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy
Finishing Touches: Washi Tape, Clear Sequins, Crystal Effects
Cool Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Simply Scored Tool, Tombow Multi Purpose Glue
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you will join me and the rest of the Design Team for our first challenge.
