Stampendous Saturday: Saint Nick

This is my second post today - be sure to check out my card for the Halloween Hop!
It's time again for a new card for this month's Stampendous CAS holiday card challenge.  Today I guess mine should be considered "Dirty" and simple, rather than "Clean" and Simple, lol.  I stamped the cling rubber Saint Nick image on my textured cream card stock, which I knew would give it a mottled look.  I added a bit of color using colored pencils (I smudged the coloring with the tip of my finger to soften it up a bit).  I distressed and sponged the edges as well.  On the card base I stamped the Cling Jumbo Merry Magical image in the top and bottom corners before I added my image panel to it.

Taylor Usry (you are here)
Our challenge to you this month is to join us in making CAS holiday cards.  We want to help you get into the holiday spirit, so this month we are giving away a Cling Jumbo Sparkle Joy set to a random winner.  You don't have to use a Stampendous image or products to play along, but we sure love it when you do! You have until Thursday, November 3 at 11:59 PM EST to add your link to the linky tool, and we'll draw a random winner. You can enter as many times as you'd like.

A note about the linky tool: you can add to the one here on my blog, or on the Stampendous blog, or from any other Stampendous team member that has shared it on their blog.  It all goes to the same place!
