My Purple Santa SC202 (and a photo tutorial)

Hi everyone! I have just finished my take for the SC202 sketch challenge over SCS. Here have a look:

The image I used here was from a swap image done over Craftmad. It's Santa and Reindeer by Hero Arts. I coloured it using my Aquarelle and blender pen and used my Copics as well to colour other areas. I coloured it last night and put it onto a card this afternoon as I'm cooking our lunch - beef steak! Yummo! I used my Kindyglitz (very similar to Sitckles, but bigger in size) to put some bling on top of Santa's hat (I used Dusty Rose there) and on the reindeers (Aztec Gold there).
Here are some closer shots..

And yes, my background was embossed using Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder. And take note, my background cs measures 4.5 x 6.5! (meaning, I was able to embossed the whole cs considering the folder is smaller than that). Well I did it in 2 pass and it's not that hard, really.

Here's what I did, check out the photos:

So, that's how I did it. I hope you got it even without words. (well, photos sometimes speak louder than words LOL!)
Happy cardmaking and have a blessed day!
