Naughty or Nice?

     Can you believe it's September already!  Christmas will be here before we know it.  Tammy is getting jump on the rush to get our Christmas cards done by releasing this brand new A Day For Daisies collection for the holidays called "Merry and Bright".  The image I've used is called "Santa with Kids".  I used some of the few scraps of Basic Grey's Jovial collection I had leftover from last year.  For the image I used a Nestabilities die to create a pop up frame to go over the image and I used my MS score board to add a little embossing to it.  The stamp is colored with Copics and edges with a little Frayed Burlap Distress ink.  The sentiment is a K and Company chipboard piece I covered with cardstock, inked and, hand wrote the sentiment onto.  The snowflake was created with a QuicKutz die, covered in embossing powder and sprinkled with Diamond Dust.  You can find this image in Tammy's store here.
     Don't forget our new challenge at the ADFD blog starts today.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
