Magical Tree Santa for the Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 6th of December, 2019

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by me!
The theme is "Anything Goes" as it is the last challenge of the year!

So here is my card:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.

Our sponsor for this challenge is:
Digital Delights
It is the first time that I have used an image from them and I have to say it was difficult to choose from all the cute images!

Here are the links to their shop, blog and Facebook page:

The prize for this month is $5 voucher to be used in their shop

Everyone on the Winter Wonderland DT used Magical Tree Santa.

So back to my card:
I digitally printed Magical Tree Santa on to X-Press It blending card, which I then cut out using my paper cutter. 
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • Santa's skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04

  • Tree - G02, G05, G07, G09, black Wink of Stella (lettering); E74, E77, E79, R22, R24, R27, G02, G05, G07 (trunk & pot)
  • Snowflakes - silver Wink of Stella
