Sketch Saturday #132: Santa's coming to town!

Hello everyone!

It's DT week over at Sketch Saturday and so time for our wonderful leader Jo to take a break and for one of the SS DT to take over!  This week it's the sweet Terry's turn to set the sketch, and what a fabulous sketch it is (thanks Terry!).  We are being sponsored by Your Zoap, a Dutch company who are offering a €25 gift certificate to one lucky entrant!  And our GDT for December is none other than the amazing Bev Rochester!

For my SS DT card, I decided to go for a Whimsy Stamps Christmas!  I used the following 3 Whimsy stamps and 2 Whimsy Shapeology dies to create my card:

The ticket sentiment was created by first stamping the blank ticket die onto white card and then using my stamp positioner to stamp "Santa's Coming to Town" in just the right place (both these stamps are part of the Holiday Ticket Sentiments stamp set).  I then cut out the ticket using the Whimsy Shapeology die which has been made just for the ticket stamps! Neat!

Now you may be wondering where the snowflake is from the Winter's Jewel die (above), right?  Well, I used the die to cut out 2 green snowflakes, then I cut them up into 6 pieces, stuck 3 back together and then popped on three 4mm red flatback pearls to create some red mistletoe/holly to match the design of one of the DP I used!  I always thought that mistletoe berries are white(?), but the leaves of the design on the DP are definitely not holly and look like mistletoe leaves, yet the berries are red! Well, whatever it is, I thought the snowflake die helped me create a great match!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. OLLCB68 Christmas Song My card is inspired by "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town"
2. Stamp Something - Christmas Colour Combo
3. Secret Crafter #112 - Christmas

I will be back tomorrow with my Sparkle Creations challenge card, and then on Wednesday we have another fabulous WHIMSY STAMPS NEW RELEASE!!!  WOO-HOO!!  The Whimsy rubber DT are going to be holding a fabulous blog hop, and we will be giving away LOADS of stamps! So make sure you check back then for some Whimsy inspiration!
