The Artistic Stamper - December challenge

Hello,
Stamping onto pattern paper is a great way to create a quick card.  Then to really make the image pop, highlight parts of the design lightly with chalks or colored pencils.  By incorporating the design of the stamp into the pattern paper you save yourself some time.  I stamped Santa's sleigh off the edge of the paper, added faux stitching with a white gel pen, and then matte it with plaid paper.

 
This month's challenge is "Christmas" and can be interpreted any way you like. To join in with this challenge, make a piece of artwork that includes the theme and some rubber stamping. Then link up your project using the Inklinkz HERE so that they can see what you've made.  Leave a comment to let them know you have joined in with the challenge.  As always, there will be a prize for one randomly picked entrant.  The winner will receive a stamp of their choice from The Artistic Stamper.  The challenge is limited to 3 entries per person.
