Balancing act

So I've had another day off work - but - have managed to get some crafting done today instead of it all being house stuff.  So, I've kind of gone a bit mad colouring and making cards - yay!

  Inspired by "I Believe In Father Christmas" by Greg Lake/Toyah Wilcox/Elaine Page I decided to make this card using this new stamp from Stampting Bella.  It's nice to be able to add a bit of comedy to a card for a change.

I bought the stamp from Quixoticpaperie (Christine Grove's I Believe in Santa),  Creating a very simple design for this one I stamped the image so there would be plenty of white card.  I've used red, green and yellow ProMarkers to colour it and then mounted it on some black card stock.

I've built the layers by using some red card stock and then cut white card so a red border is showing.  The top shaped red and green cards are cut with a Spellbinders die set I've only just got and thought I'd try out.  The only embellishments used were some red, green and black self adhesive gems.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges
Passion for ProMarkers - Entertain Us
Christmas Cards All Year Round - No Patterned Paper
Stamping Sensations - Christmas

Happy crafting
