Paper-pieced Santa …

Hello and welcome. The theme challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is Santa. I used my paper scraps to make this paper-pieced Santa …

Scraps of Stampin’ Up Christmas dsp framed the Santa perfectly …

I hope you like my card for this week.  We would love for you to join us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and show us your beautiful artwork.
