Star Haloed Santa

I confess I rather like the challenge of a one layer card, and the perpetual AG One Layer Christmas card challenge is a good motivator.

Now it's quite typical for me to get inspired by a challenge, but not finish it before deadline, which is the case with dear old Santa here, so he's showing his CAS credentials instead.

As you'll all have seen there are 'lots' of Valentines challenges on the books at the moment. I'm rather partial to a bit of optional twisting, so here's a February 14th palette with Christmas spirit.

Santa's halo is a stencil, embossed through my Grand Calibur, and then Espresso Adi and Broken China distress ink applied to the replaced stencil. The Santa round is coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils.

Colour Q #327: Kraft, Cherry Cobbler, Ruby Red, Pool Party
