Old St Nick

Hi, been so so busy I haven't posted for a while.  This week at Crafty Creations our challenge is to use GREEN, PURPLE & SILVER with some "snow" on it.  The very talented Peggy is our hostess this week and we where given some images by our sponsor Stretch n' Bubbles Shop.  I chose this image and it reminded me of St. Nick.

I used the challenge colors to color him using my Prisma Pencils and Gamsol, then added some white flocking to the little roof ro make it look like snow.  I cut the snow flakes using the Cricut cartridge Christmas Noel and covered them with snow glitter and added a pearl to the center.  I matted him on green and silver paper that I ran through my Cuttlebug for texture.
A closer look at those snowflakes so you can see the sparkle.
Well sorry this is such a short post but have to go pack, we are leaving for Laughlin, NV in the morning to go to a wedding.  I think I might do a bit of gambling while I am there :), well I guess more than a bit, I love all those crazy slot machines.
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peak, let me know what you think of my St Nick card.  I think I will cut out the words St Nick to the top of the card.
