Santa's coming to town- 2nd GDT card for MDUC

Hello Everyone!
I have a tag card to share with you today.
I won a guest design spot for October at MDUC 
and this is my 2nd GDT card.

Our new challenge this week is ~
Fa La La La - Get inspired by a song

My card was inspired by the song ~ Santa is coming to town.
I used Edwin With Sack from the newest Magnolia
collection ~ A Christmas Story.

I water colored Edwin and fussy cut out the image before
adding glitters to the fur trims on the coat and hat.
However, my camera never seems to pick up any sparkles.

The card measures 6"(H) x 5"(W).
I attached a TH small easel on the back of the card 
so it can stand upright for display.
The heart shaped tag is a mini Christmas wish list.

DPs are from Webster's Pages and Stampin'Up.
Dies and punch are Magnolia DooHickey, Memory Box and MS.
The Poinsettia is handmade using Magnolia die cuts.
I will post a tutorial on how to make these
water-distressed poinsettia in a future post.

Hope you enjoy this visit and thanks for stopping by.
Don't forget to hop over to MDUC to see 
all the beautiful creations by the DT.


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:
