Christmas at SIC

Another few cards I've made during the week but not had the light to photograph follows.....

Firstly, over at Stamp It Crazy, they have a sketch for us to follow....
and the recipe...Santa face, button or embellishment and using red and green
This is my take on it....

Well I don't have a just a Santa face image and I noticed that others have used a whole one - so am going to chance my luck here. The embellishment used was a home-made snowflake (seen through rose tinted specs).
The image is from Kenny K, coloured with promarkers and gel pens with glitter on the furry bits. This was ink distressed in red and matted onto bottle green cardstock. The main BP is papermania I think from a christmas collection from a couple of years ago. It was a gift so not that sure. This was matted onto more of that bottle green then onto the red card base. There are 3 ribbons layered up across. The snowflake brads were coloured with red alcohol ink. The little snowflake embellie is home-made as I said and backed on yet more of that bottle green. The sentiment is a peel off. Final touch is the dewdrops in the corner.
Stamp It Crazy sketch so I am entering this into their challenge
