Merry Monday #162 - Merry Christmas Santa

Hello Friends,
Happy Monday, it's time for a new challenge at Merry Monday's Christmas Card Challenge.  This week Kristie is our Hostess and she is challenging us to Use a Tag on our Christmas Cards. I used a NBUS (Never Been Used Stamp) that I have had for quite a while for my tag.  I watercoloured Santa's face and then sponged colour on the rest of the tag.  I added the Holly and Berries for some added interest with the Silver Ribbon, Crystals, Velum and then Silver Embossed the Sentiment. I used S/U's Chalkboard Pen to highlight Santa's Hat, Beard and Eye Brows.  Provo Crafts Snowflake E/Folder finished off the background.  Drop by the Merry Monday blog and check out the amazing cards by the rest of the Design Team for some more inspiration.
