Santa's coming to town

Good day everyone

I have a card to share with today that I made for Herazz Scrapbooking as my DT card for December.

I used the Sketch from this weeks challenge at Sketch Saturday

For my papers I used Glitz Joyeux Noel collection and Kraft cardstock.  For the dies I used Spellbinders Classic Circle, Classic Scalloped Circle, Dee's Stacker tree, Tin Holtz Mini reindeer and for the small snowflakes they are Cheery Lynn Mini snowflakes.

Stamp is Whimsy Kenny K Collection called Santa, he is colored with copics and I used paper piecing for the pouch.

Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: Wc, W1, W00
Reds: E19, E07, R24, R22
Green : YG67, YG63, TG03
Yellow: Y26, Y21, Y30
Blue: B95, B93, B91
Black : W9, W7, W5, W3

I added Glitter Ritz warm highlights to the trim on his coat, snowflakes and trees.
TIP: For the trees, i added Copic opaque white first where I wanted snow, this way it stays white.  For the deer I added Vintage photo Distress Crakle Paint.
