DD - Here Comes Santa Claus!

Hello Friends!
It's time for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Team Darlene is hosting today and the theme is:
Here Comes Santa Claus
(Use SANTA on your card/project)

Here's the inspiration board I have created to help you get started . .

For my card creation today, I have jumped into
some very old Graphic45 Christmas papers and images.
I just LOVE vintage styled Santa's
and this is one of my favorites.
I have used Sue Wilson 'Snowflake Background' to help showcase Santa and
Sue Wilson Designs - Festive Collection - Snowflake Background
and panel from a different 12x12 Graphic45 holiday paper pack
called 'Christmas Emporium' peeks through from the back.

The sentiment was included on the original photo of Santa in the paper pack
but I did a little fussy cutting, added red stickles to the berries
and Wink of Stella to the holly to use as my accent panel.

Challenges to share in:
