A Merry Christmas Card for Funday Friday Challenge

Hi you all! Wow it's been some week, got my needed treasury finances done for the group I volunteered for and ready for the audit, plus it got passed onto the new treasurer, so happy that I did this and now passing it on to another to enjoy it too :) So I have been R&R this whole week, vegging out on the couch watching movies and enjoying some good reading too, did miss doing that and glad to be reading again. But I'm back to another crafty weekend ahead and lots to craft about.
It's a Funday Friday Challenge over at Jo's Scrap Shack :) Today the theme is It's Sketch Time and the sponsor of this challenge is Little Blue Button Stamps. I used one of their Santa art png file for my card today:
 So the png file I printed out on matte photo paper and just love the bright color of the file. The circle stamps are the perfect size to punch out with 2 1/2" SU circle punch. It's Sketch Time so the challenge is to also use this sketch:

Isn't that Santa stamp so much fun to use and the file comes with 6 different stamps to use. I used a variety of papers that was in my Dec counterfeit kit, mainly the CTMH workshop on the go cardmaking kit: Pear & Partridge. (Still have some paper left from this kit to use up :) I also grabbed some paper from my box of papers I pulled last month for my Dec Daily so glad that the Christmas paper is still readily available.
 I used my scallop/scallop punch for the white snowflake border (the paper is left over from another card I made) Added the red ribbon from last month's embellishments tray of goodies from the counterfeit kit.
Thanks for stopping by today and we hope you all will play along.
