Here Comes Santa Claus challenge card

Hi folks.  I am loving digi stamps.  If you seen my post from yesterday, I had said that it was my first time using them.  Now I don't think I can stop!  I was up all night shading, coloring and have a great time finding some to start with.  Once again I found this image from Free Craft Downloads. I entered this card in the Opus Gluei Challenge 117 What's On Your Head? and he weekly challenge at Delightful Challenges which is a Bingo Challenge this week.  I am really happy how it turned out.
The card base is a regular A2 size card cut lengthwise (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). I used the Tim Holtz Ornamental die cut and used a red scrap of patterned paper I had lying around.  The strip of patterned paper is cut at 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" and is from the Happy Holidays line by Jackie Eckles and is called HH Strips. I used this patterned paper along time ago on a layout for my son's 1st Christmas (over 3 years ago) and had it stored for a "special project".
The picture as mentioned is from Freecraftdownloads and was colored using my Prismacolored pencils.  The image was cut at 3 1/8" x 3 1/8".
I added a scrap strip of Offray Cranberry Grosgrain ribbon and finished it off with an antique brad that I had.
I added a Holly berry sticker to Santa's hat and also a sentiment from the same sticker pack.  I got this sticker pack last year in the scrapbooking section at our local Dollarstore while finding some storm day activities for my son!
Hope you like it!
