Santa Claus is coming....(eventually!)

Hi Everyone!

Just another little Christmas card for you this afternoon. I used Monday's Mojo Monday sketch for this card. I don't have any Verve Christmas stamps; but anytime I do a Verve related challenge, I try to use at least one Verve Stamp. For this card, I used "Tag Time" for the curvy book plate stamp. The "Santa Claus" stamp in the middle is from a set of Christmas stamps that I picked up last year from Michael's. I stamped the Santa Claus image with Bravo Burgundy and the sentiment with Charcoal Chalk ink from Color Box.  I used patterned papers from American Crafts "Merrymint" collection and various other coordinating papers for it. I'm not sure that the Martha Stewart Lattice punch at the top was the best choice; but I just bought it the other day and I couldn't wait to use it!! I also got some baker's twine, and I added some of that to the top as well.
Just a couple of other challenges for this card:

1. Anything Goes: Die Cuts or Punches
2. Paper Take Weekly Challenge: 3 or more shapes. (rectangular for the base, the 2 squares and the curvy label)

Have a great evening, and I'll be back again tomorrow!!
