IB49 Retro Santa

Hi stampers!  I have been fighting a cold or something for the last couple of weeks and I think it got the better of this will be quick!  Laurel has a fabulous retro Inspired By for us mind was whirling with possibilities when I saw it.  Sadly, I just wasn't up to being too creative so my card is pretty simple:

And here is her cute photo prompt:

My Santa is from a retired Artistic Outpost set called Frosty and Friends; I stamped him in Real Red, then gave him a wee bit of color with some Blends:

His nose looks sort of how mine feels, LOL!  I matted him in Glorious Green and gave him some holly berries just like on the DSP I used for the other layer!  Red Glimmer Paper made a wonderful diecut sentiment using the Merry Christmas Thinlets, along with a sentiment from Merry Christmas to All:

The layout I used is the FMS sketch for this week:

and finally, a sweet little sentiment from Papertrey for the inside:

I have a lot of digital images that I could have used for this challenge, and I'll bet you have some fun things you could use as well! I just need a few more hours in my day!  Hope to see you in the gallery!

Getting ready to prank Mommy with a fake egg!  Silly girl!
