Merry Monday #191 and MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge #267

IMG_9587


Back on the wagon with Christmas Cards again!
I was going to colour this Santa for the Merry Monday Challenge, but the week escaped me and I decided to colour it and use it for this week's Merry Monday Chalkboard Challenge #191!

I went old school with my chalkboard and did it on some Papertrey Ink Pinfeather cardstock because the chalkboard I remember from school were green. Do you remember that? I started by white embossing my sentiment and then I stamped the stars, snowflakes and sponged the edges with white ink. I used the sketch from this week's MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge #267.
