Here Comes Santa Claus!

Hello it is almost Friday!!!  Yippeee anyone else ready for the weekend?  I sure am and I am lucky enough to have next week off work.  I see a week filled of stamping baking, eating some turkey and most importantly spending time with the family!!

So today I have a card I made for Flourishes Be Progressive challenge.  It is a four part challenge that includes a sketch, monochromatic color scheme, patterned paper and some sparkle.  How cool is that!!!  I loved this challenge as it was different and I used one of my favorite new stamp sets (Dear Santa) from Flourishes.  You can find all the details for the challenge here.  There still is some time to play, but not much so if you are interested head over right away and check it out.
Here is my card.
The paper is Basic Grey's Jovial.  Check out the Spellbinders snowflake pendant.  Isn't it awesome!!! I love it I got it a few weeks ago and hadn't opened it, I am sorry I hadn't sooner as I love it!  I will be using it often.  I colored the image with copics.  I realize that this is not totally monochromatic, I did slip in a little green and yellow.  Hopefully that will be okay.  Thank you for stopping by.
