Double D Challenge - Santa Hats

Hello Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog and, it's another fun theme chosen by Diane ... also check out the amazing mood board she has designed to inspire you!

 Our theme is:  SANTA HATS

Here's the mood board Diane has created . . .

Isn't that just adorable!?! 

Here's what I came up with . . .

I love vintage Santa images and I spotted this one out on the internet.  He reminds me of all the Christmas cards and images I remember as a child so I decided he (with his awesome hat) would be the focus of today's card. 

I simply printed it onto glossy photo paper and then die cut it using a Sue Wilson - Frosty Frame die.
Sue Wilson Designs - Festive Collection -  Frosty Frame

Then double matted it with red & green card stock onto a white card base.

Diane has this fabulous prize offered to one lucky winner.
But, you have to play to win!!
