MTTC Challenge #262 - Santa

Hello friends and followers, hope each of you are doing well!
I'm excited to share my DT card for My Time to Craft (MTTC)
Challenge #262 - "Santa" because I finally used a stamp set 
that a dear friend gave me a few years ago (thank you Patrice!)
but it had gotten stuffed in a basket only to be forgotten until now.
Take a look:

I'm just so excited over  how this turned out.  I used my Stampin' Up
markers to color the stamp and get the variation in the colors
Then I ran the image through my Big Shot using my new
Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies and cut the image into 
3 layers.  After gluing the first layer to the cardstock base
I then used dimensional dots to pop up the second layer. 
Ohhh...oops.. before all the adhering I used a sponge dauber
and ran it around all the edges using Baked Brown Sugar ink (SU)
to give it an aged look and more dimension.  The last piece of 
the three I dropped down inside the frame I had created with the
other two pieces and viola!! LOVE it :o)  
I used a Qtip to give Santa his rosy cheeks and lips. 

Here's a look at the very simple inside

I hope that you will join us this week at MTTC #262 and show us
your rocking Santa creations! My lovely and talented DT pals
have also made some fabulous creations for your inspiration.
