Santa Dog

Good day everyone,
I have a fairly simple Christmas card for you today that I hope you will like.  
....not too many embellies so it fits in a 6x6 envelope just fine.
I recently won a CRAFT Challenge and was fortunate to choose several digis from Karen's Doodles and couldn't wait to colour them up.   Here I've used Santa Dog and I think he's just the funniest.  
He is so darn proud of himself ......struttin' in his Santa suit!


It was difficult to capture the gold metalic stripes in the dp in the photo but irl it is very effective.

DP is from an old SEI 6x6 pad called Silver Valley.   Die is Spellbinders marvelous squares. Sentiment created in word.  Coloured with Copics
Black velvet ribbon used for the bow
Kaiser black rhinestones in each corner

Entering the following challenges:

2 Sisters - Christmas Sparkle
My Sheri Crafts Challenge #99 - Tis the Season
ATC's and Cards with Attitude Challenge #28 - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge #18 - CAS
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge #27 - CAS

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Hugs,
Pat K xx
