Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Another Chrismas card to pop aside for the festive season!  The image I've used is a Papermania Urban stamp which came as part of a set in a Docrafts goody bag last year.  The packaging does not do the stamps justice at all.  If you've ever seen the film Bad Santa starring Billy Bob Thornton, well, that's kinda how he looks in the packaging!  The stamps are actually really nice, fun to colour and are quite detailed.  The sentiment stamp is from the same set.  I've coloured him with Promarkers and added some texture to the fur trim with ultra fine Flower Soft.
The patterned  papers are Papermania Noel, also in a goody bag and all the cardstock is Papermania too.  I added a wee bit of interest to the kraft panel with a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.  It's a bit of an unusual colour combo with the grey and kraft but I quite like it.
The die cut snowflake is a Sizzix die which I've layered with a wooden embellishment.  Ribbon, bow and a few gems finish it off.
