Santa Claus is coming to town!

Hi there, another Christmas card from me today, this one is for this week’s Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge

I even managed to decorate the inside following the layout on the front of the card, and now that I have actually got space for my sewing machine even that got put to use Smile


The lace started off life white, but I spritzed it with a mixture of Tea Dye and Walnut Stain to give it a vintagey look to match the papers.
