Feliz Navidad!

I hadn't actually used that sentiment this year so just had to pull it out for this one!  I experimented a bit with Santa's beard - and ended up with an interesting texture.  I have also decided that foil card is not my favourite thing to photograph!


I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

I have used a paper from MME for the background.  The image is from QKR Stampede and is coloured with copic markers.  I added some Stickles - Star Dust to the hat and sleeve trim.  I applied some Liquid Pearls to the beard and moustache and then moved it around with my finger.  The die used on the image is from Tattered Lace and the sentiment die is from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is from Eureka Stamps.  Matting is red foil card.  I also used some grosgrain ribbon from American Crafts and some red bling.
