60's Santa

Good Morning Ladies,
It is still warm out there this morning. I am working on orders today. But I most always post on the blog first before heading down.
The card for today is 60's Santa
This was not a hard card to make. All of the elements came from a new  TPS 12x12 pad. The post card and Santa were cut from two pieces of paper from the pad. The post card has Tim Holtz distressed stickles around it.
The inside sentiment is from the Stamps of Life.
Happy Scraps,
