Winter Wonderland Blues

Winter Wonderland "Blues" ChallengeI didn't want to miss out on this Challenge at all it's getting me already for Xmas Early
(It's Late for the challenge But not for Christmas lol)
The Glue wasn't even dry on the gems before I snapped my picture. I collect Vintage Postcards and Blue Santa's are really rare to find... And they come with a large price tag... Which are a little out of my price range. So it gave me the idea of a simple little Blue Santa who sparkles

Materials Used
Papers : Brazzil, Cardstock, Vellum
Colored with Primsa & Gamsol
Glitter and also Ranger Metallics and little blue snowflakes and Blue Bling

Thanks for Looking
