Winter Wonderland - Santa Claus is coming to Town

Hi again everyone, the weather is quite dull this week here in London. There was a really crazy storm midweek I watched it from the comfort of a pub in Greenwich which literally sits on top of the Thames. As the weather has not been so good I made extra time for DT work and this week for the challenge at Winter Wonderland I produced a tag and a card. The theme is Santa Claus is coming to town. We want you to include Santa on your projects this week.
I have this image by Paperartsy which I adore. I brought alcohol inks recently and this was a good chance to play. I used the inks to make my tag initially and then this progressed into my card.
I used the inks to create a background and stamped the image on top. I then added further stamps to create a vintage vibe. I also added some fibres a swirl, stickles and some diecut snowflakes.
