An Older Guy

This week's challenge at CD Sunday is 'Aged to Perfection', so I thought I'd feature my favourite older man - and it's not my partner! (He,he..)

I used Papermania 'Christmas Past' CD. I made two copies of the Father Christmas image and I used the transparency button in Docrafts Digital Designer to make one of them lighter for the background.

I used a sketch from My Time to Craft .

I'd also like to enter Word Play Saturday Challenge,  Magical.

A great take on this weeks challenge theme & I love the faded image for the background. Acts as a reminder I must start Christmas cards soon.

What a beautiful vintage Santa! I like the effect of the background and your choice of design and colors - this card has a great traditional Christmas feel to it!

That is a really lovely Christmas card and a great take on our theme this week. Nice to see a variation on traditional red for Santa too.
