Guess who's coming to town?

Supplies:  Waltzingmouse Stamps - Vintage Ornaments, Santa's coming 
to town set, Memento Black Tuxedo ink, Spellbinders Vintage 
Ornament Dies 2010, Clear embossing powder, versamark ink, Tea dye 
distress ink and blending tool, pop dots, adhesive, kraft and black 
cardstock - Folia, mini bell - Paperchase, Anita's A6 card blank
and embroidery floss.

This week the challenge on Paperplay Challenges is "Cracked Glass" and I have this santa's silhouette stamped and "cracked" for the past few weeks on my desk and hadn't manage to make anything with him.  So here is my card using non - traditional Christmas colours and various techniques.
This is an upclose shot of the "crackle/cracked glass".

Waltzingmouse Stamps have had a Christmas Card Challenge running since the beginning of the year and I have taken part in April's one but really wanted to do more.  Going to add this card to February's Challenge which was "quick pick" - use something on your desk (mine was the cracked glass silhouette lying around begging to be used!).

Also entering this card to the following Challenges
Delightful Challenges - Snowflakes
Jellypark Challenges - Non traditional Christmas Colors
Cards for Men - Christmas Cards for Men

This is so cool, Dee! Love that silhouette of Santa and the way you've used the cracked glass technique! Both your background and panel look gorgeous with the snowflakes!
