And now for my project:

I created this Santa Claus card using Mistletoe papers, stamps and embellishments from Close to my Heart.  The edges of the card are brushed with New England Ivy ink and the cardstock is sanded.  The sentiment is from the Mistletoe Level 2 My Stickease Assortment.  Santa was stamped with Black ink and colored in with colored pencils.  His beard and white trim were textured with Fun Flock (one of my favorite toys).  I also added Cranberry grossgrain ribbon. 

As for blog candy, I will be drawing a winner on July 31st from all comments throughout the month. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post (or any other throughout July).
