Falling for Holidays with BYSHC

Looks like fun and I am always in for building my stash of Holiday cards! I used this digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Santa on Roof. This image just spoke to me - I don't know if it was the spindly legs or the vintage look, but I just loved it!
I resized the image and printed onto Ranger Ink's Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock with my Brother laser printer. I am a lunchtime watercolorer (is that a word?!) and prefer the 268 Dot Watercolor Cards by Daniel Smith. There is such a wonderful choice of colors and easy to carry to the office.
The background stencil is from Pretty Pink Posh called Whimsical Christmas Stencil. I know not much is showing, but it gave just the right colorful edge I wanted. Ink blended lots of Distress Ink colors for a nice rainbow look.
If you know me you know I never just make one card. Here is the second card with our cute cute Santa on Roof:
Both cards have Glossy Accents sprinkled with German Glitter Glass (Purchased from Etsy) while wet on all the white areas. Wish I could pick up the amazing sparkle.
I felt a square card was perfect for him:
Thank you for joining me today and thank you to the BYSHC for the inspiration and link party!
I will also be submitting to NBUS for this is the first time I used this image!
