Here comes the long hot summer, so the challenge for me is to make a winter card. It doesn't matter what topic, but just thinking about winter is the challenge. On that note, the challenge this month for you at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' is HERE COMES SANTA! Let's see all those great images depicting Santa's arrival in this challenge. Here's my card for this month.
Isn't this digital image just PERFECT for the challenge? I saw this image and then started a search. I took a couple of days, but I found Mary Ellen Smith of Dearie Dolls who drew this image. Being digital is a bonus with an image this size, too! And to put this in perspective, this card is 6"x6".
This paper is from Doodlebug and the paperpack is named Home for the Holidays. The image, the paper, and the sentiment by Whimsy...were so perfect together that I have used very few embellishments so the paper shows! I used two types of ribbon, one ribbon taped on top of the other in the corners. The little red pearls are from my stash. I used Stickles glue on the snowflakes, but then used loose glitter by Wow! on the snow over the ground and car.
