A favourite stamp

I am sharing a Christmas card today that I know has now reached its destination.
I used an old favourite Traditional Santa, stamped with Brown Archival ink  for the top layer, 
 edged with gold embossing powder.
The rest of the card is  layers in  cream  and brown,  with one of them embossed ,   a lace trim completed the card..

I will be entering these Challenge themes....
Fashionable Stamping Challenges where the theme is....Celebrate
Moo Mania and More where the new theme is...... Christmas

Thank you for stopping by today, your visit is always appreciated.
