Santa got all torn up, but now he's dong much better

Not sure how vintage he looks, but I like the way this card turned out - like a card found all ripped up, but put on a newer background.  I am entering it into Our Creative Corner's challenge of Santa Claus is Coming!   The criteria is to do work in the vintage style, Santa Claus must be on it and add something red.  The Santa image is downloaded from the blog.  I colored the red with some Copic Toner Gray markers to make if feel more vintage to me.  Also grayed the white and cheeks.  I can't find washi tape around here, but got some craft tape from Michales, which worked out very well.  The red poinsettia strips and the music bars are craft tape.  I cut the base panel from a pad of K & Company Xmas paper I bought a year ago and the colors are just about an exact match for the music craft tape.  It looks like the music was stamped on the background.

Beautiful card Arlene! That Santa Claus image looks gorgeous with your touches of color. If you cannot get washi tape in your area, you can go to this link where there is a tutorial on how to make your own washi tape https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzfqDZcTV2KMelJER2ZNWktMQVk/edit?pli=1
