Santa Claus is coming to town

The current challenge at Winter Wonderland is 'Santa Claus is coming to town' and I've used an upcycled card for my image.   I'm also paying another visit to Pixie's Crafty Workshop as the card and paper are from my snippets drawer.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk 
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Other: Upcycled Christmas card, red gems
Snippets: Red mirri card, beige paper

I layered two squares of beige paper onto red mirri card (with the join to be hidden under the topper) and attached it to the centre of the card blank.  I die-cut and embossed the Santa image and attached it to a die-cut and embossed scalloped circle.  This was then attached to the card front with foam tape.   To finish I attached red gems to the top and bottom corners of the card.
