Christmas Fun

Have you started getting ready for Christmas?  Now is your chance to start and get the chance to win a prize at the same time.  This week's Christmas Stampin' All Year Long challenge is ANYTHING GOES!  Easy peasy!

My card is based on this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch #160
Plus I was inspired by a song for the latest Creative Card Crew Challenge, can you guess which one...Santa Claus is Coming to Town (in about 199 days!).
I also wanted to share how I got the green pattern paper to match my image.  I did a stamping no no and colored up my image before I had decided what I was going to do with it.  Usually, at the very least I have patterned paper in mind when I color, but not this time.  Soooo once it was time to put my card together I realized that I did not have any bright green or red patterened paper.  I did have some lighter green paper from Basic Grey (in a scrap pile no less), so I used my green copic over it to get it to match - super easy and I didn't have to buy paper.  Here is a pic with the original green pp at the bottom.

Be sure to check out the rest of the CSAYL team's creations for inspiration and then get crafting! 

Details: Image - Whimsie Doodles ('Santa Express), Senitment - PTI, CS - PTI, Copics, Twine - TheTwinery, PP - Basic Grey, Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug, and Button - PTI.
