Here comes Santa Claus! Catch the Bug Christmas Chaos challenge card #1

Bugaboo Bobblehead Christmas Santa digistamp colored with Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils. Card design by Paperesse.

The Bugaboo Catch the Bug challenge blog is having a 'Christmas Chaos' week of challenges. The first challenge's theme is 'Here Comes Santa Claus' and of course, I'm linking up. There are some great prizes up for grabs, be sure and check it out.

This little card uses the Bugaboo Bobblehead Christmas Santa digital stamp as its focal image. I added the sentiment using Candy Round BTN font, one of my favorites.

I used my Toga polaroid die (DCG 509), to frame the image. This is a great die. Not only do you have the polaroid frame, but the banner and arrow I've used here as well, plus a heart and another banner. It makes a great frame for just about any stamp, as you can tell from this very Gallic birthday card I did early this year.

The paper is from the Carta Bella Christmas Day 6"x 6" paper pack.
