Colour Create DT card for Challenge #26

Good morning,
It's time again for Colour Create Challenge!
This week Chris has picked the colours. She has pick Ruby, Cream and Gold. With the extra option of Gems. Our wonderful sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp. The cards that the design team have made this week are just stunning! Make sure you pop over to have a look. The colors are yummy so I do hope that you can join us this week.

I have made my card to look old and worn. Destressed all of the papers and tried really hard to find just the right little embellies to give it that old world charm. I love this image of this old world looking Santa. I have only colored parts of the image. To make just the Santa stand out. I had fun making this card. I really do like the way that it turned out. I have not used your normal Christmas papers but the over all look of the card is and Old fashioned Christmas.
Sorry that I didn't get a chance to stop by all of the entires from last week. My work schedule was just a little crazy. I work way to many hours. I will do better this week. :o)
Thanks for stopping by to have a look today and I do hope you will join us this week.
hugs, janny
