When Santa comes down the chimney


I was lucky enough to win a challenge recently that Pink Gem were sponsoring and I chose this gorgeous vintage Santa as one of my digis. Isn't he fabulous, so I kept with the traditional colours and kept the design fairly simple as I though this would make a great male card.

Fantastic image and such a great card. The candi is scrummy too... Must keep my eyes open for those (and one of these days I'll remember to actually use some of the 15 bags of candi I already have! lol) x
