Santa floats up the chimney

Have you ever wondered how Santa gets back up the chimney?  He floats up with the help of a balloon!

I have used a Christmas paper from DCWV.  The image is from The Paper Shelter and has been coloured with a combination of copic markers and watercolour pencils.  I have also used some Christmassy green mesh ribbon, a handwritten sentiment on a pennant (Spellbinders) and a green tree shaped metal brad.  The die-cut used for the image is from Memory Box and is actually a tag pocket die but I cut off the pocket part.
