Santa's Grotto

This week over at Die cut Dreams Christmas Club Challenge we have the theme "Santa Clause"
so I used this great Magnolia Santa stamp masked up to sit on the Princess chair then coloured with Copic markers.
The lovely candy striped DP is of course BG, and the lush wide red lace I picked up on eBay along with the green gingham ribbon , the sentiments and punches used are all from SU

Hi Susie,
Oh this is just so sweet. What a gorgeous Santa image that is, love that red lace at the back. I would never have thought of gingham ribbon but it looks lovely.

He looks a happy Santa, must be the good children list he is looking at , or could it be a very empty bad children list? Fab card either way.
