Sketch Saturday - Sketch #24

This week over on Sketch Saturday the lovely DT has come up with another fab sketch. For my card I have used one of the new Magnolia Santa collection and the "silent night" background stamp (I used the masking technique again). Santa has been coloured with ProMarkers using the following colours...
Ivory/Blush (Skin)
Ruby/Black/Metallic Gold (Santa Suit)
Black (Boots)
Cool Grey 2 (Gift Sack)
Ruby/Holly/Forest Green/Metallic Gold (Parcels)
I have used some Core-dinations cardstock for matting and DCWV 6x6 christmas paper pad. One the main image I turned the corner over and secured with a green heart pin. I also used some American Craft velvet ribbon, Prima Blossoms with a PaperMania glitter brad and a spacer bead, finished off all over with some Sakura clear glitter gel pen. On the sentiment and the main image I added some Versa Magic chalk ink in "wheat" to soften the harshness of the white cardstock, and to make it look like aged music score.

Thanks ladies, such a fab sketch.
