Merry Christmas--Merry Monday #217 Sketch Saturday #433

Oct. 10, 2016

When I saw the challenge at the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, I knew just what I wanted to do.  I love retro things, too, so this was right up my alley.  

 I am using the sketch from Sketch Saturday from Simon Says Stamps.  I love lots of layers, so this sketch is perfect for me!

My card is created on a white card base.  I used a variety of plaids from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas Pack.  I backed the layers with red card stock.  The retro Santa is from Tim Holtz Christmas Memories and stamped in red ink.  I also added a number #25 in the corner.  Enamel dots and Wink of Stella were added to give Santa some shine. 

SO happy you stopped by my blog today!  I love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.
