Vintage Santa

I feel like I'm really struggling with Christmas cards this year, normally its my favourite card making time but this year I'm sadly lacking in inspiration despite all the stamps etc I have.  I do love traditional Christmas colours and vintage style so I was quite happy creating this card.  This is my all time favourite Santa stamp and the plus factor is that it doesn't need colouring.  Spellbinders oval die and poinsettias cut from DP paper. Papers are Craftwork cards from a couple of years ago and Dec 25
is an old Stampers Anonymous cube stamp.  Bit of ribbon and some shabby white frontage.  I'd like to enter this in
