Santa's Nice List for Merry Monday

This week's Merry Monday challenge was to include Santa on a card. Here is my card . . .

I had the white frame of the  Simon Says Stamp Circle Border hanging out from a previous project, and it was my starting point.  My intention was to place it on a red card base and work from there. 

I started by stamping and coloring my Inky Antics image with my Copic markers. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle border to cut this image.  I then found a scrap of pattern paper to "fill" the inside of my white circle border.

My sentiment was stamped in Versamark and embossed in Ranger embossing powder.  

The holly embellishment was sent to me from a StampNation member as part of the swap. It seemed like the perfect little embellishment to highlight the sentiment.

Hope you find some time to create today!
