Santa's got a tree.

I seem to be on a Christmas card roll at the moment. This is my first card for the challenge over at Lady Anne's using the two digi's provided. These have been supplied this month by
Nana Vic's Digitals.
I love this santa digi and decided he looked mega cute on his own so have kept to using a fairly simple design for the layout. 
Digi by Nan Vic
Coloured using Promarkers and Pearlescent chalks.
Backing paper part of a12"x12" sent from a friend in America.
Corners left  from an intricate die that I had used earlier in the week.
Coloured to match the Christmas tree.
Pearls and cardstock from my stash.
Digi edged using a silver highlight pen by Papermania.

What a steady hand you have to outline your digi like that. I am very impressed...I would have gone over the lines for sure.

Those corner dies are wonderful! They match the tree so beautifully. Oh...I just thought of something...maybe you coloured them to match the tree!

Great card Mrs A.

Terrific Mrs A - love that you used leftovers for the corners - and why am I not surprised!

Been ironing here and watching TV - I guess I need to tune in or record the show at 4pm?

Hugs, and no sheep dog!

Adorable. I'm with Scrappymoi on the steady outlining hand! Great job on the coloring, and loved your snippet bits too. Good idea, as I'd prob'ly just swept those into the trash! Looked wonderful as trim here. TFS & watch out with that water pistol. Even though it's cooling when I get a splash of it.
