Just Us Girls #113 - Sketch Challenge

It's Saturday and time for another challenge from Just Us Girls.  It's the first Saturday of the month, which means it's sketch challenge week.  Elise is our fabulous hostess this week, and she created a great sketch!
Here is a better view of the sketch.
 And here's my interpretation of the sketch.  I was feeling vintage-y today, so I used the Lost and Found Christmas dp from My Mind's Eye.  The Santa image is from Impression Obsession.  I colored the hat and face with prismacolor pencils and gamasol.  The fur on the hat and the beard were covered in Martha Stewart fine glitter.  I just got this Jingle Bell die from Memory Box and couldn't wait to use it.  I cut it out of Cherry Cobbler paper and only used 5 of the bells on the side.  The ribbon is some seam binding from Debbie Marcinkiewicz's Etsy store and the fern is a Martha Stewart punch.
Because it's the first Saturday of the month, we have a new Featured Designer...Lenet Mos.  You can also stop by the JUGs blog for more inspiration.  Here are the links to the girls' blogs too.  Thanks for stopping by!
