Bad Santa

Today I had fun in my craft room, making a Christmas card for a few challenges. I had a LOT of fun making this particular card, which is my take on a Naughty Christmas. I gleaned inspiration from Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for their brilliant alphabetical challenge (I chose N for Naughty Christmas); Open-minded Crafting for their "Inspired by a Movie" challenge (Bad Santa) and The 12 Months of Christmas Cards Progressive Challenge blog, which has put me on the path toward a rich Christmas card stash by the time December 1 rolls around.
My Santa looks pretty good, huh? Makes me wish I were more naughty, so he would visit me next Christmas! LOL The image is from Ike's Art-I absolutely adore her images. I colored and framed him with Copics, popped him onto my 3-layered card front, and piled on holiday shimmer. I printed my sentiment on Microsoft Word and circle-punched it out.
Other challenges I am entering:
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Hiding in my Craft Room - Any Holiday
We Do Dobadoo - Romance Challenge #2 (wouldn't mind Santa's boots under MY bed)
Left of Center Challenges - Layer It Up
