Santa Coming to Town with a Balloon

I love this quirky image from the Paper Shelter – Yep, I Have my Methods.   I coloured it with Promarkers and Copics, used glitter snow and Glamour Dust for the snow and fur and then cut around the image.  I made a fancy fold card – with a bit of a difference to the         original idea – and stuck papers from my stash onto it.  They looked a bit pale so I             distressed them lightly with a blue ink pad.  I added several die cuts and punched         snowflakes from my stash and glittered them with Glamour Dust.    The stars are                 embossed with silver embossing powder, as is the sentiment – which is from LOTV.


 I would like to enter my card into these challenges –
