Vintage Santa

     Okay here's my third and final post for today.  Been busy haven't I.  LOL  This jolly old St. Nick was made using the sketch from Seize the Sketch.

     I've had this wood stamp from Inkadinkado for several years and love the vintage look of Santa.  I edged the top panel with gold embossing powder to match the gilded stars.  The sentiment pieces were cut from the paper collection.
