Christmas In July

Good Morning all!
It's Monday, the start of a brand new week & a brand new challenge over at
Eureka Stamps where the theme this time is
Here's my little DT Inspiration card!

The image I've used is Digi 6607 Santa On Skis
Cute huh?
I coloured him up using my promarkers, cut out with a spellbinders
square die, then inked the edges with a chalk inkpad.
I added a touch of glamour dust to the fur & the pom, on his hat.
The papers I have used were in my scraps box.
The sentiment was printed & die cut.
I inked them too.
Some of the elements are mounted on foam pads for dimension.
 I used a Matha Stewart punch to create the leaf border.
The little reindeer was cut with a spellbinders die & detail added
using sakura pens. Finally, I added some skittles to finish it off

Here's little look from the side too!
Thanks for popping in today, I hope you like my little card!
I hope you can play in the challenge too!
