Santa's fly-by

Not one to waste anything, I had this round diecut left from another project and just had to use it.  The design is inspired by a sketch.

The colours are New Zealand summer Christmas colours.  Our native trees are evergreen, blue for clear skies and sea - most kiwi's would spend some time at the beach (most people are not more than 2 hours from a coastline), and red for the pohutukawa, our NZ christmas tree.

Circle dies: Spellbinders
Santa die:
EF: Tim Holtz

That is a wonderful Christmas card with great die cuts. I think we all feel that we can't waste/throw out anything unless absolutely necessary, lol. Thanks for joining in the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge, Lisa Lynn DT.
