HJ - Dies & Punches

Hi everyone,
 
Just sharing with you my card for our new challenge at Holly Jolly for the next two weeks our challenge them is
 

Dies & Punches

 
What a fabulous challenge to get you started on your Christmas cards!
 
Plus we have some great sponsors: Bugaboo, Dr Digi and Fred She Said.
 
I have used an image from Dr Digi called Surfin Santa and coloured this very cool Santa in with Copic Markers.
 
The papers used are from Bo Bunny Back to Basic Elf Magic #14901907 & Tinsel #14901917. The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley Circle Sentiments and has been stamped in retired Midnight Muse.
 
The sentiment was punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and layered on some Real Red cardstock which has been die cut with a die from Memory Box called Lace Circle.
 
Here is my card:
 
 
 
 
With this paper it seemed perfect to use this sentiment "Happy Christmas - Sending Love across the Miles"
 
 
Here is a close up of the image:
 
 
The Copic markers used were:
 
Skin/Beard: E0000, 000, 00, 21, 11, C0
Shorts/Shoes: B00, 93, 95, 97
Surf Board: W00, 5, 3, 1, 0
Ground: W00, 5, 3, 1, 0
 
 
 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cute card, Meighan. He looks like he's vacationing. Love the look of the board. I remember the days of surfing. I was never that great at it.
