Vintage Santa ... (Joanna Sheen DT Card)

Another DT card today which I made for the Joanna Sheen Challenge this month.
On my first card I coloured Santa in traditional colours but the more I did 
I realised what a wonderful warming face he had and decided to go vintage.  
Just goes to show this stamp suits both traditional and modern.
Stamped little santa onto white cardstock and coloured with a combination of Promarkers, 
Flexmarkers and Prismacolors.
Cream cardstock for the backing which has been distressed with TH ink.
Sentiment is also from the stamp set.
Some seam binding, twine, pearls, charm, buttons & cheesecloth from my stash.
The fir cone is a favourite of mine right now available here
All finished off with some hand stitching as my regular followers would expect!
I have been asked about my snow effects on previous cards and it is really rather simply.
Colour your image as you wish, dot over the image and background with a white gel pen.
Finally using Liquid Pearls dot over your work once again, leave to dry.
For the frosted pine cones or flowers as previously, 
pva your work and then add Twinklets Diamond Dust.
Loving all the entries so far on the challenge, some amazing work and there is still time
to enter and win some fabulous prizes.
