HDH064 Butchered blueprint

A sketch that Barb has asked us to follow. Not the normal thing over at Macabre Mondays. A change is as good as rest they say. They are being sponsored by Limited Runs this week and 3 digis go to the winner.
I've had this image of Santa from Stamp It Crazy coloured in using promarkers for a few weeks just sitting waiting patiently for me to get round to it. This seemed to be the ideal opportunity.

So we have some deep maroon card for the base, then using my MS goo punch we have a dark blue spotty, then black then a paper from Crafty Choas from the rich autumn glory set printed onto pearlised paper. The glittery ribbon has been ruffled in a kinda zig-zag way. The candy cane was drawn by me onto card, and a lot of glossy accents after colouring. The "sentiment" is computer generated.
The style of base card is a "backwards" easel and a brad at the back to secure

I am also entering this into the challenge over at My Partner in Crafting Crime for their "marker challenge"
