Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #33

Here it is...My Tuesday sketch! This was outside my comfort zone, but I liked the results. I used just the Santa head from my Santa's Presents stamp and colored it. Then I used the 2 biggest Label 3 nesties for the frame, but it was too bid, so I used the next size smaller. Now I had the other label sitting on my desk and decided it would be perfect if I cut it in half and used them as my diangle strips of paper. Talk about using all the scraps :) All papers were from Graphic 45, giving the card a more vintage feel. I still felt that it was too plain, so I added the pine branchs punched out from McGill. Then I used 3 red brads to add for berries. Thanks for looking!
