It's Christmas in July!

Hi Stampers! This week I am going to attempt to keep up with the Bugaboo Stamp Challenge Blog's Christmas in July Challenge. The first challenge for the week is Show Us Your Santa. Here's my Santa:

My Santa comes from the Jolly Old Saint Nick stamp set. I just love this vintage version of Santa. I stamped my image with Stayz-On Black Onyx ink and then colored it in with Spectrum Noir markers FS2, FS3, IB3, BT8 and my blender. I added a little bit of Dazzling Details (SU) to Santa's beard and hat for a touch of bling. The sentiment comes from Four the Holidays Stamp Set (SU) and is stamped in Tempting Turquoise. The paper is from the Jillibean Soup Christmas Eve Chowder 6x6 Pad. I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch to create my card:

Be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see the fun projects other stampers have created using this sketch, and don't forget to stop by the Bugaboo Stamp blog and follow along with the hop this week - they have some great give-aways!

Thanks for stopping by!
