Santa's Helper.

This is the first card this month for the challenge over at Lady Anne's using the digi image  provided by DS4J. I have coloured the digi in using Promarkers and a Papermania gold gel pen. I fussy cut the image and pieced over the top of a second image allowing his right leg and shoe to overhang the die cut shape so that it would appear that he was climbing out of the framework.
I have used gold crepe paper for the backing paper and framework.
Spellbinders die  Majestic Elements .
Corners are off cuts from the above die.
Stripe paper is from  a Hot Off The Press pack  free in a magazine.

Entering into the following challenges:
Lady Anne's Progressive Challenge #9:  use digi provided by DS4J.
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra #9: Anything goes as long a Christmas theme.
Creative Card World  #10: Beat the rush.
Crafting Musketeers#6: Christmas in Oct.
Divas By Design: 3 or more layers (crepe paper, DP, die cut, digi image.)
One Stitch at a Time #184: Use a digi.
