Scrapbox Challenge #5 - it's all about Santa

Hi all and a happy weekend!

The theme for this scrapbox challenge is "Santa Clause". If you're up for a challenge using only designer paper scraps from your scrapbox, just make a card with Santa somewhere on your project and Designer papers only from your scrapbox. Remember, this is just for fun and if you'd like me to come see your creation just leave your name and card link with mr. linky.

If you are new to the scrapbox challenge: Anyone can play along, but please enter new cards only with mr. linky. This is just for the fun of getting myself (and maybe you) to use up designer paper scraps from my (your) ever growing stash. There is no design team and no prizes to win, it's just for fun!


For my card I used one of my favorite christmas stamps from Penny Black "Santa's comin' ".
Image was colored with copic markers. This was a super simple card to make. The designer paper is a scrap from a retired stampin up christmas designer paper. The strip was perfect for this, I didn't have to trim anything off. I embellished with some red grosgrain ribbon and did some paper piercing along the bottom edge. The sentiment is from Stampin Up (Warm words).

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Hope you like the project and maybe you'll join me in using up your scraps!
