Little Santa Hat

Afternoon Folks!!
Can you believe that this cute little chap has been coloured since last weekend but it has been a bit of a non productive week here and he has only just made it on to a card!! Still on a positive note, I think I am still in time for the Christmas Sparkle challenge over at House Mouse and Friends !!

The photos aren't great but I hope you can see his little hat has had doodlebug white crushed velvet and glamour dust added, along with glitter around the edge of the image and lots of blingy red pearls - an ebay bargain :-)

I was struggling a bit for inspiration this morning until I found a fab sketch over at The Sweet Stop, I've turned it around a bit so I hope it's still OK?? The papers are a combination of Forever Friends and Henbury Lane from last year, I keep telling myself I DO NOT need to buy more papers for xmas but it is sooo tempting!!!
