Merry Monday & The Challenge

I don't have many images with a Santa Hat...or even Santa's with clear images of hats.
How is that possible?
 
I did have a Paper Smooches stamp called Merry Motifs that had a Santa Hat...so off and running I went with that one little tamp.
I decided to use the sketch from HERE  and play along with The Challenge while still making my Merry Monday  Christmas card!
 
 

 
All solid papers are PTI, the pattern paper is from Lawn Fawn:  Peace, love, joy
the "Believe" is from PTI stamp set:  Believe
also used Li'l Inkers stitched mats rectangles and ovals
Oh, used copics to color the hat and some diamond stickles for the trim on the hat!
 
Thanks for taking a look!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
