Santa at the Window

Boy was this one hard to photograph, what with the acetate in the window and the foiled sentiment which says "Happy Christmas", although it came out looking like a blank oval no matter how many pictures I took!
 I used my Memory Box Grand Madison Window and Plush Curtains dies for this card, adding some matching spotty bows for tie-backs.
The Santa stamp is from a Papermania set, I used Distress Inks in Broken China and Faded Jeans for the background, masking the figure and the moon with post-it notes, then colouring the image and moon with Promarkers, and adding a few dots of white gel pen to the sky for stars.
The papers are Papermania Tulip Christmas and the sentiment and matching band are from Craftwork Cards.
