Christmas Santa

A card for Christmas 2017  using a Bugaboo sketch and a stamped image from Close to My Heart D1443 -Share the Magic'. The background was created with  a  Stampin Up   'Merry Medley'  stamp and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I used an embossing folder from  We R Memory Keepers titled Sequence #1  for the patterns on the thin vertical strip and the wider horizontal strip. I added  six white circles for some embellishment and to complete the sketch.
