Merry Monday Christmas Challenge: Santa

I've found this Blog: Merry Monday Christmas where they are having Christmas Card Challenges throughout the year and I think it's a great way to get all your cards done without the usual stress before the holidays. Also it's a chance to use all the Christmas stuff, which I have been hoarding for years by buying new stuff every year and just using it once :) 

So the challenge this week is : Santa
To get some inspiration I went on You Tube and found this lovely tutorial for a plaid background card by Gina K.
I really like the overall look and technique, so I decided to use it for this card. 
For the plaid background I've used white card stock, a red Stabilo pen and a green and gold gel pen. I've found the image on Valerie Brincheck's craft blog. Check out her blog she kindly provided hundreds of free images to use. It's a real treasure trove if it comes to vintage images. The greeting is from a Viva Decor stamp set. 

Thanks for looking :)
