Bah Humbug challenge.....

Bah Humbugs challenge this week is Santa Claus/Father Christmas.
The stamp I have used is by Hampton Art Stamps and is simply called 'Santa Claus'.  It's not an easy stamp to colour as it is quite dense but thought copics pens would be the best choice.
I managed to find a tiny holly punch so used that on his hat.
Backing paper is from Dovecraft Christmas Fancy paper pack. Sentiment is from LOTV and the letters used were from Sizzix Naturall Serif Alphabet strip.
Hope you are all enjoing this wonderful weather that we are still having.....

I stamped my foot when I saw the image you used here Anne as it's the very one I was going to use but it's not tit for tatt eh?? lol Lovely card, the balance is great. I always find the stamping a bit dense to colour in as well which is why I often use him on parchment and emboss from behind.
