Ho Ho Ho - It's Santa!

My favorite time of the day to stamp is on Sunday morning before my family wakes up.  I brew a pot of coffee and then get to creating.  I am playing along with the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #147 this morning.

I colored up the newly released Whimsie Doodles Lantern Santa image my my opics nad I added some stickles for snowflakes and on the flame of the lantern.  I did some faux stitching around the image.  I stamped the PTI pure poppy panel with a A Muse Artstamps snowflake in PTI fresh snow ink.  I ran the PTI new leaf panel through the SU square lattice embossing folder.  I added the strip of black CS to mimic Santa's belt and tied some Maraschino red baker's twine from the Ribbon Carousel around it.

Here's the sketch:
