DT Card - Cards for Men Challenge #23

Hi everyone,

I hope you are well and enjoyed the weekend.
 Today starts a new challenge at Cards for Men and the theme is Christmas.
Our lovely sponsor this week is Scribbled Kidz. 
I've used a digi called Dear Santa that can be found here.

I recently received my first order from Papertrey Ink and couldn't wait to use these lush dp's on my card.  Their vintage cream is such a lovely colour and is a perfect match to this pattern paper called Holiday Flourish & Swirls.

The Christmas postmark is from LOTV.  Dear Santa created in Word and the charm is from my stash.

Coloured with Copics
Paper pieced his pj's

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland Challenge - For a Child
Crimbo Crackers Challenge #54 - Christmas Words
ABC Christmas Challenge - V or Vixen
One Stitch At A Time #189 - Holidays

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Your lovely comments are always appreciated.

Wow Pat - this card is wonderful - it's got a 1950's feel about it with those gorgeous papers. Oh, the expression of concentration on the little boy's face as he writes his letter to Santa is priceless - your colouring is awesome and paper piecing so exact and effective. This card is packed full of charm. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)

Such a cute image, reminds of my son labouring over his letter to Santa each year!! DPs are lovely too, they look almost like fabric! Thank you for sharing at One Stitch At A Time and good luck in the challenge.
