Jolly old Santa

Happy Sunday to everyone,
Yes another Christmas card, with jolly old Santa. I have almost reached the required number of Christmas cards for my friend's project, one more after this and then I will start on my own stash of Christmas cards.
This was a quick put together, and this is what I used:
Paper: I needed to make my own DP..required for one of the challenges.. so I used a stencil from Crealies for the bottom half and I embossed the top half with a cuttlebug folder and added some glitter to the snowflakes. from a local company, coloured with aquarelle pencils. Added flowersoft for the fur on his hat, cut out with a nestability.
Added ribbon and 3 transparent beads.. not sure what exactly they are called... were in a gift from a friend in the UK.

I am entering it in the following challenges
Outlawz.. Tuesday colour, green and white, with transparent embellishment.
Paper Play..create your own DP
Secret Crafter...Christmas is coming
Ooh La La Creations...Oh Christmas
Christmas Cards all year round.. Texture paper..embossed, stamping,ribbon,inking...stencil

Wishing everyone a wonderful week.
