Father Christmas

The current challenge over on the CD Sunday blog at the moment is Father Christmas. As soon as I saw this challenge it had me reaching for Debbi Moore's Santa Clause 3 CD. It's taken me all week to get it made but here is my card for the challenge. I started with an 8x8 card base and printed off this wonderful Father Christmas to decoupage, he hangs over the edge of the card slightly, but I don't mind that. After matting the backing paper onto some gold mirri card and placing the decoupage on top I look around for some embellishments to add. These parcels are some that I cut out of some scraps last year from a Tonic die and didn't get around to using, so I added some of these. Finally I added the Seasons Greetings which was cut out from a scrap of red mirri card using a Britannia Die.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
