SSS135 - Rhubarb Santa

Another work week down!  Nice!  Saturday means it is time for my favorite sketch challenge!  For this week's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #135, I decided to make a Christmas card using the Rhubard Santa digital stamp.  I just love this little teddy bear!  

I colored Rhubard up with copics and cut him out.  I sponged some Christmas themed text from the PTI Background Basics: Christmas in SU crumb cake ink onto PTI vontage cream CS.  Then I distressed the edges and sponged on some PTI tea dye duo ink .  I matted that in PTI dark chocolate CS.  I popped Rhubarb up with foam dimensionals.  The card base is PTI vinatge cream.  I added some DSP from the "Be Merry" paper pad by My Mind's eye.  I ran a strip of PTI kraft CS through the SU square lattice embossing folder and matted on PTI dark choclate card stock.  I punched the edges with the SU eyelet border punch.  I added some yummy 1" red grosgrain / satin edge ribbon and some ivory jute / burlap twine from the Ribbon Carousel along with a big 'ol PTI dark chocolate button.  Finally, I added some frosted lace Stickles to the trim and pom pom on Rhubarb's hat. 

Here's the sketch:
