Christmas #86

Yes, this week's challenge at One Stitch at a Time is Use a Digi - NO, it's not, it's Christmas!!  That's an easy one for you and if you're having difficulty finding a digi you should check out Stitchy's shop for some wonderful images. I chose to use Stitchy's 'Sweet Santa', isn't he lovely? The small square card blank is from Craft UK and I scored it to make an easel card. I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut out his mirror to back it with the silver card. He can now check out his image as much as he wants. lol After I'd coloured him I cut him with a Spellbinders nestie before cutting a larger size in Papermill silver to back it.  The red paper and the sentiment are from a freebie HOTP paper pad that I got in a magazine a while ago. I backed the sentiment with silver and I used the Spellbinders scroll and corner to enhance the base. The sentiment is 'fastened' in place with two red pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Please come and enter the challenge over at OSAAT. The sponsor this week is our own Stitichybear so check the store out now, in case you're the winner!
