Good morning!  I'm playing along with Bugaboo's "Christmas in July" festivities...when I saw the details of their week-long celebration, I knew I had to play along!  Saturday's challenge was to use a Santa; I found this cute one in my stash and combined some other challenges to make my card.

The image is colored with pencils and Santa's hat is accented with glitter.  The image panel is distressed and mounted on a circle to mimic the cookies.  The layered DP's are also distressed.  I contemplated adding something else for embellishing, but decided there was enough going on with the busy DP....

Image: Bugaboo
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Dark Chocolate, SU! Garden Green, Echo Park DP
Embellies: Art Glitter in "Angel Dust"
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

52 Christmas Card Throwdown: July Color Challenge
Catch the Bug Christmas in July Saturday Challenge: Use a Santa
Cuttin' and Stampin': Christmas in July
Digi Sketch Challenge: Layer it Up
Merry Monday: Anything Goes Christmas Challenge
Sketch Saturday: Sketch

Thanks for stopping by!

This is a really cute image - but I especially like how you've used the round mat (echoing the circles in the designer paper) behind the focal point! Thanks for sharing your card in this week's 52{C}CT challenge.
