Vintage Santa

Oh dear, so many Christmas challenges I wanted to enter this week and unable to choose. Anyway, I new I wanted  to to make a vintage Christmas card for my son and this is it.  I used kraft card and lots of layering and distressing. I used a piece of song sheet music which is called " Santa Claus so Jolly" and distressed the edges with bundled sage distress ink. I added gold brad snowflakes and some webbing. Bearing in mind I was ill for a couple of days this week I was lucky to get it finished today. I was pleased with the end result.
Two of the challenges I have entered are :-  (vintage) and who's challenge is Xmas + pearls or vintage.

 The rest are listed below. anything xmas tis the season one for the lads xmas distressing xmas card (use Kraft) anything goes linky party "c" as christmas free week masculine holiday santa claus christmas card anything goes anything goes music anything goes christmas anything goes use kraft card stock xmas music use a sentiment all about christmas  anything - inspire me friday linky party holiday theme use kraft card stock
