It must be Christmas Eve!

Hi Peeps,
Can you believe I'm back with a second post of the day, I've done this card for Jim, so I need to get it out the way for later, and hope he doesn't look at my screen lol,
I've used two Magnolia images for my card, I got the chair and thought if I don't use this it will sit there for ages so it's had an airing , the challenge over at Magnolia down under is to make your own patchwork background, well it is there honest, look closely, well hidden, I will admit but that's why I then made a cushion for the chair, using exactly the same papers and stitching,
Copic creations want to see ~  Light source, well the light is hitting my rather worn comfortable old armchair, which has seen better days but is much loved,  and the presents have shading too,
Hopefully you can see the shading on Santa, with his waist band you should be able too, hark at me you should see mine, no were not going there THANKYOU!!!
Just Magnolia's challenge is anything goes, with sparkle, well his fir trim has sparkle, still it does only get worn once a year so it should lol,

Put this on twice as I think I cropped the first one a little too much lol, and there was me thinking I was being so clever with a fade out edge and everything lol,
This is cropped a tad more just in case you haven't got the picture lol,
Yes Santa's head is meant to be missing I didn't crop it that much lol,
Oh well, it's starting going colder again now,roll on summer!
Back tomorrow,

Fab. card Liz - love the Santa escaping from the scene! Brilliant colouring, and I love the fade-out edges (do you use a special photoshop programme for that)?
It's still very cold in West Yorkshire too. Keep warm - Hugs, Sylvia xx
