Merry Christmas sketch challenge

Hello! Today I am sharing a Christmas card I made for the sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps!.  Here's the challenge:

And here's what I made:

What a great sketch. It was a lot of fun putting this card together. Here are the supplies I used:
Merry Everything Clear-mount Stamp Set Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack Frosted Sequins Crumb Cake 8-1/2 x 11 Card Stock Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine Window Frames Collection Framelits Die
I also stamped the snowflake stamp from the HOLIDAY HOME stamp set in White craft ink behind Mr. Santa.  Mr. Santa is from a retired SU stamp set.  To make the "tag" I ran just the top part of a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock thru my Big Shot using the WINDOW FRAMES Framelits.  Then I just trimmed the sides off to make a tag.  I also used my Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Skin Tone Blendabilities along with a green and black copic marker to color Mr. Santa.   And a Christmas card can not be complete unless it sparkles, right? So, I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to Santa's suit. : )

Well, I am about 1/2 finished with my Christmas cards. I would like to get them done by next week, if at all possible.  Happy Stamping!
