Christmas Joy in June

I saw the challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' to make a card showing warm winter clothing. Of course, Santa Clause has to wear really warm winter clothes,

so here's my example made from my box of Christmas paper scraps and a CTMH ornament and stamps. I think the background paper was from Basic Grey.  I colored Santa with watercolor pencils.  I loved the sentiment stamp which was very inexpensive and may not be available much longer.  Santa is one of the images in the set Santa Claus.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
A Snowflake's Promise #24 - anything goes
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - warm winter clothing
Christmas Card Challenge #30 - anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #287 - use a sentiment
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - anything goes!

Thanks for visiting! May the JOY of Christ be with you all year

Fabulous card. I love the freehand sketch look of the Santa image.
Thanks for joining us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and I do hope you'll join us again.
