Stuck Santa!

   The theme for this week's challenge at Eureka Stamps is 'anything goes'. I decided to take the opportunity to add to my Christmas stash and could not resist this image (number 16901) of Santa stuck in a chimney. The sentiment is digi image number 16902(527).
   I wrapped the 'cheers' ribbon round a square of core'dinations cardstock which I had sprayed using Crafter's Companion iridescent Spray and Sparkle. I then matted and layered this onto silver mirri and then white card.
   I coloured the image using Promarkers. I used a silver gel pen for the buckle and added Stickles to the cuffs and hat. I then cut it out leaving a margin so that the image would stand out from the background, shaped it slightly and attached it to the card using glue gel. I cut the sentiment out using a free die and tucked one end of it behind Santa's head.
