Another red and white card

Made for the current challenge at the Play Date Cafe:


supplies: red and white cardstock, Susan Branch Santa download, Hero Arts CL343 Holiday Sayings, barn door distress ink, red emboidery floss and red heart button, Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis pendant diecut


I am really enjoying this challenge - simple red and white are the colors of the season and they are so pleasing to me.  This one started with a digital image of Santa by Susan Branch - LOVE her art!  It was sized to fit inside the Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis pendant, and then all I had to do was stamp my sentiment and add the heart button and red embroidery floss .  I think this will go to my little grand-niece.

Here is the inspiration photo from PDCC:
