CTD#170 - Santa

Hello there! It's time for this week's Color Throwdown (CTD170)!   I'm this week's hostess over at the CTD blog and I've chosen some semi-traditional Christmas colors for all of us to create with this week.  I hope you'll find time to play along.

For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Tremendous Treats Holiday along with some My Mind's Eye designer paper.  I started out by stamping the fun Santa image from the TTH set, colored him using Copic markers, added some glitter to his cuffs, pom pom on his hat and the stars (see close up photo below)and then die cut him out using a circle Nestie die.  I kept the design of the card clean and bold using these colors, some large green rick-rack, scallop border and large yellow star with button and twine.
