Here comes Santa Claus

Hi there,

I noticed that Catch the Bug have their week of chaos again this year, and while I never have enough time to do an entry for each day, I thought I would at least try to do today's and tomorrows themed cards. So here is today's card:

I received this image of Santa with one of the ATC's from the group I am in. I decided this was a perfect image for a Santa Claus is coming to town theme. I layered him onto gold mirri card and some poinsettia patterned paper, that were die-cut with X-cut nesting dies -large ornate frames. I also followed the rule of thirds for this card - as the technique in focus over at Crafting Techniques - by placing the image in the top third of the card, and the sentiment in the bottom and left third. The image is also compiled according to the rule of thirds.
The sentiment is three peel-off's stuck onto a circle die-cut from the poinsettia paper, and three red diamantes were added to finish the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
