{vintage Santa} for a new challenge

Hey there blog peeps!  Yay - we made it to Friday.  I've got a card I created for a new challenge {for me, that is} that I happened upon in my blurfing - The Paper Players Challenge.  For this week, the challenge is creating a monochromatic card, so I thought I'd try my hand at doing a vintage Santa.  I am really loving the rich Cherry Cobbler color and the Deck The Halls DSP, which is what I used in my card.  Wanna see what the full card looks like?
Whaddaya think?  I used my top note die in an unconventional sort of way by cutting an inch and a half off the short side, then using that extra scrap piece for my sentiment.  I love the tinsel trim - it adds just a bit of sparkle to my card.   And to finish it all off, I embellished with a seem binding bow and topped it with one of the fun Deck the Halls buttons!  Hope you like it!
