Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenge - Midway post

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Open Minded Crafting Fun challenge.  Right now our challenge for you is Fairy Tale or Fantasy.  And our fabulous sponsors are:
,,, and 

For my card I used a digi from Eureka called Santa on Skis.  I figured Santa was a good Fantasy character... even if I really want to believe he's out there :)

The paper that I used for this card is from American Craft - Jolly.  I used my scallop and large circle as well as my Belly Band 1 die All from Spellbinder.  I used a little sparkly sticker from my stash and some ribbon as well.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.  I used Fired brick distress ink all around the image.  I also put a bunch of stickles on his hat and all the cuffs.  The great sentiment is from Create with TLC
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Eureka stamps - Masculine or grungy - I'm thinking this will be a great masculine Christmas card without too much frills!  
  2. Decosses dynamite doodles - 12 months of Christmas card link up
  3. Christmas stampin - Anything goes
  4. The stamping boutique challenge blog - Use dots - there are dots on the paper
  5. Christmas at sweet stampin challenge - Santa
  6. Fab n funky challenges - It's Christmas
  7. Christmas card challenges - Anything goes
That's it for now!!!  Hope you have a great Saturday!  Mine will be spent doing some cleaning and then resting... the week was... well it's over and let's keep it at that lol but next week promises the same... so better be in shape.
