Merry and Bright

Santa and his reindeer behind him..... I think he has a few spare here!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Penny's Paper - Add a Sentiment
Lady Anne's Progressive Challenge - Santa
Robyn's Fetish - Metal Real or Faux
CHNC - Anything Christmas

I have used a paper from MME for the background.  The image is from Fred She Said and coloured with a combination of copic markers, Glossy Accents and Stickles - Diamond.  The metal used is the inside seal of a Drinking chocolate container - the piece they put on to ensure freshness and that no-one has tampered with the container!  I ran it through the Big Shot to flatten it and then die-cut an ornament using a Spellbinders die.  It turned out so well that I am now saving all these pieces so I can cut some other embellishments!  I added three small rhinestones to the metal ornament to make it look more like a real ornament.  The sentiment is from  Desert Diva and stitched around using a Distress Marker.
