Santa's List

Here is a Christmas card I created using Santa Christmas from Karen's Doodles.  The base of my card is burgundy card stock.  I cut a piece of Christmas plaid paper backed in sage green card stock.  I cut a strip of tan card stock and punched the bottom with an eyelet lace border punch.  I added a green ribbon to the top of it. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils, backed it in burgundy and tucked it in behind the ribbon. I cut the sentiment out in a circle, backed it on burgundy and then cut around it with scalloped scissors.  I finished the card by adding 3 cream pearls to the upper corner and a bow under the image.
