Vintage Santa

This was a quick card to make since I used a color vintage image of Santa Claus from Paulette's Create with TLC that I downloaded some time ago. I have been wanting to use this image and it goes just great with these papers from Authentique "Wonder" pad  and BasicGrey "Jovial" pad. I cut the image with an oval die and placed it on a doily from my stash that I distressed with Wild Honey Distress Ink. Stamped a GKD Sentiment with Versamark and used Ranger White EP. Assembled the card and added MS Pearls,  Organza  Ribbon Bow, and some plastic sprigs of holly that I just happened to have.

Challenges:
Sugar Creek Hollow: Use both stripes and spots on vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project. Stripes are in the border of mixed patterns on left of the card and spots on the mat under the doily.
Saturday Challenge Secret Crafters: Theme is Spot and Stripes.
Really Reasonable Ribbon:  Challenge #36 is CAS (Clean & Simple) Christmas plus Ribbon. This was a very simple card to make.
Tuesday Throwdown: Challenge #75 is lots of circles. Lots of circles in the Paper and Doily.
Truly Scrumptious: Christmas projects with pearls or vintage. Mine has both.
Even though this was a easy project, I really like the vintage look and richness of the colors.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
