52CCT & Just Add Ink..Santa

Happy Hump Day!

Today I am sharing a card I made for this week's 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Pick a Previous! Challenge and Just Add Ink...Santa!.   


                                        JAI 194

My card:

My card today features a sketch Santa Claus from Flourishes called Santa I Believe.  I started out with Whisper White, Basic Black and pretty patterned paper from SU! Festival of Prints DSP.  I stamped the image in Crumb Cake ink, and adhered it on a piece of Black card stock.  I really like how it made the image stand out.  I then took some retired red ribbon from Stampin Up and wrapped it in both corners.  The sentiment is from SU! Petite Pairs, and was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  This was a fun card to create!

I'm also linking up to Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge - Use Some Red.

Thanks for taking a peek,
