Lily Pad Cards ~ Simon Says Stamps Bling Challenge

I made this card for the Lily Pad Cards ~ Simon Says Stamps Bling Challenge All you have to do is use some bling on your card...That's the only restriction!!....You should go check it out!!

Here is my card!!...another Christmas Card!!...

and a close-up:

Isn't that Santa the cutest!! sweetie found this stamp when we shopping at Pat Catan's over in Ohio!!...the stamp was $'s that for a sale!!

I decided to go with non-traditional colors...I get tired of looking at red and green after a bit!!...I colored Santa with Copics...I added some "chunky" glitter to the trim of Santa's coat, pants and hat...I also added some glossy accents to his belt and boots to give it that patent leather shine!...I have had some "metal" papers laying around for a LONG time...I decided to make the belt buckle out of some...I turned the stamp over and laid the metal paper over it...I used a stylus to trace the shape of the buckle and then cut it out!! isn't perfect...but it gave me the desired affect I was going for!!...I also added a clear dew drop to the ball of Santa's hat!!...I think he turned out super cute!!

The NOEL letters are from another $1.43 stamp that my sweetie found!!....He's the greatest!!...I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped on white cardstock...I colored the letters with Copics and then cut them out...It doesn't show well in the picture...but I backed the opening in the letters with green glittered cardstock...

The paper is from Basic Grey and the ribbon, jingle bells and snowflake are from my stash...

That's it for now!!...Have a Great evening!!
