Challenge Time at The Drunken Stampers

Team Yellow Canary is back to bring you another challenge, this term it is Person Place or Thing and since it is near Christmas it is Person and the person is Ho Ho Ho …..Santa Claus or anything relating to December Holidays,  Check out all the other Yellow Canaries projects and get the rules by visiting The Drunken Stampers Challenge Blog..
This week I decided Santa Claus was what I wanted to do for the Person theme. I bought the Santa Collage from Rubber Stampede a long time ago when it was on clearance after the holidays, and every Christmas it gets a work-out. The sketch I used is from one of my favourite sketch blogs, Tuesday Morning Sketches. I stamped the image with versafine Sepia, did a bit of distressing, then I did the Burnished Velvet techique using warm glitter ritz. It’s really sparkly IRL.
Here is a close up of the sparkle on the image.I’m not sure you can even see how glittery it is.
Supplies I used:
Image Santa Collage from Rubber Stampede
Card stock..Old olive, Very Vanilla, not sure who the patterned paper is from as the envelope is gone,
Spellbinders oval and opulent ovals Embossing folder from Stampin’up  Some rickrack that I’ve had for at least 6 years. Warm glitter ritz and double sided tape.
Challenge I am entering this in is.
Sketch #227 at Tuesday Morning Sketches

I was thinking of using this sketch, as per your snowman card, for my Christmas cards…but decided to make my cards very simple.
