Santa I Believe and wonderful news

Here I am again with a second post for today and some exciting news. I was asked to be a guest DT member of SparkleCreations Christmas Card Challenge for January. Wohoo! How exciting is that!! You can never have enough Christmas Cards so the sooner you start, the better.
This week's challenge is embossing (wet or dry) and here is my card.
I used Santa from Flourishes Santa I believe Set. The Santa is stamped with Memento and colored with Copics. Gold glitter pen was used for the glassed and I added red pearls on the Holy Berries.
The background is a thin metal sheet embossed with Tim Holtz EF and lightly sanded to make the snowflakes stand out more. I got the metal sheets here: Add a Little Dazzle.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
City Crafter Challenge - Stamp it Out! (no digis)
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - pearls (on the holy berries)
