a shabby Santa card

I made this card for Moxie Fab World's Stretch Your Holiday Style: A Shabby Chic Challenge.

I got this Santa stamp last year at the post-Christmas sale at my local scrapbook store after seeing Tim Holtz's awesome 12 tags of christmas. I love this detailed image but never had the chance to use it since it was after Christmas when I got it...

But it still feels weird to make a Santa Christmas card in the summer...

ingredients used:
cardstocks, satin ribbon, button, twine: Papertrey Ink
patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket
stamp: Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection
inks: Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Memento
lace: Joann

Thanks for stopping by!
