Dear Santa

It's the first day of spring, and I'm showing a Christmas card. Oh, well, I've shown plenty of spring cards while it was still winter.

This card features a Santa image from Scibbles Designs. It's colored in pencils (although I'm not really happy with the coloring and will go back and do some touch-ups).  The image panel is pierced all the way around. The layout is from SCS, and it turned out to be a good way to showcase busy patterned paper without overwhelming the card. On the base panel, I used white gel pen to write a little letter to Santa.

This card is for these challenges:
CRAFT #407 -- Christmas
Winter Wonderland -- for a child
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge #325 -- anything Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge EXTRA -- anything Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge  -- use patterned paper
