Santa's coming to town

Happy Monday everyone!! It's time for a new challenge at Stamps R Us and today's theme is...EmbossingSketching Stamper is sponsoring the challenge and I chose this fabulous Santa image to work with!! 
Santa is colored Copics, the dp is from Authentique... the Wonder collection and the postage stamp is from Whimsy Stamps.  The embossing is done with the Sizzix Dots ef and a QuicKutz die was used to cut out the poinsettia.  The pine trees were cut with an CB die and a Sizzix die was used for the swirls... added some tiny cream pearls and there you have it! 
  For more inspiration make sure you stop by the challenge blog and take a look at all of the DT fantastic creations!   
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
