I believe in Santa

What a night we had last night! So stormy, wild winds and loads of rain but it has made a great job of removing lots of lingering leaves! Just the clean up to go now!! Anyway time for another challenge at Crafts4Eternity and this week we have another gorgeous sketch for you along with the recipe of USE A SANTA IMAGE. Now everyone has a Santa image I am sure so no excuses this week:) The prize up for grabs is 3 digital images from Crafts4Eternity Store!
For my card I used one of my new La Blanche Christmas stamps. They are so gorgeous!! I coloured the image very lightly using distress inks and some copics. I edged it with lots of glitter. The papers are from my last year's stash along with the little sentiment and tree circles. The ribbon is also from my last year's stash (finally got that Christmas box opened). I distressed all the edges to get that old feel to this card. The flower is a Marianne die.
I would like to enter this into these challenges
