Christmas in July

Hey everyone...
I'm back!!  and with a Christmas card... my goal is to get all my cards done before December - one can dream right!!  speaking of dreaming... this little guy is dreaming of Christmas - it is an older stamp of Stamping Betty - i love her stamps.  This was my first set and I won them from her must have been over a year ago but that was how I became hooked!  she is such a great artist!!
Anyhooo... back to the card...
I used liquid applique from ctmh to get the puff on his hat and the santa stamp is from CTMH
the background was misted and I used a piece of velum that I have had for eons!!
and some close ups.. 
 ohhh can't forget about my stickles
