Vintage Santa:

Good morning all!  In a blink of an eye, it is Wednesday again.

This week's challenge at Papercraft Star is locks and/or keys.  I have had this Bo Bunny key since Christmas and was quite excited to put it to good use.

I dusted off a Christmas stamp that I have never used and gave Santa a distressed look:

I needed some pearls in a brown tint, so I grabbed my E29 Copic marker, coloured the pearls - and it worked - love the way they turned out!!
Card Ingredients:  Recollections stamp, Craftsmart Chocolate Brown and Tim Holtz Paper Bag inks, Bo Bunny papers, trim, lace, and key, Recollections pearls, Copic marker.  Tools:  sewing machine, Making Memories edge distresser.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Crafty Cardmakers - lace and stitching, Christmas Stampin' and Kaboodle Doodles - stitching, ABC Christmas - Santa, Papertake Weekly - sketch:



Have super wonderful Wednesday and thanks for the visit.
