Time for another Challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this week we are celebrating the big guy so we want to see all your cards with him. We are once again sponsored by our good friends at One Stop Card Crafts this week so one lucky winner will get a voucher to use in their online shop.

For my card I used my Stampin up tree and Santa. they are colored using Promarkers and touched up with some Spica glitter pens and sticky gems. The background started as some white card. I inked it up with old paper and walnut Distress inks then stamped it using Tim Holtz Christmas Carol stamp and some old canvas for the texture. The red card is inked with Fired brick Distress ink and stamped in Walnut with the same stamp. The button is from BoBunny and the ribbon from my stash. I have to say I did not think the images would take as long as they did to color. There were so many intricate bits to color. Sorry about the lighting on the card it is a bit washed out because of the flash. I so miss our house in England with all the natural light. So much better for photos.

Now you can see some more great inspirations from my team mates at the Try it on Tuesday blog. You can also upload your card for us to see. We cannot wait to view them.

Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela
