Christmas Card Club Challenge #17 - Santa Claus is coming to Town

Hi Crafters,
Again I'm posting my CCC card a day early as I have another DT card for tomorrow, hope that's ok ladies?
Carol is our hostess this time and she has chosen 'Santa Claus is coming to Town'.
Topper - Hobby House - Jolly Christmas
Papers - Dovecraft - 'Back To Basics Christmas'
Kraft Card
Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circle and Classic Scalloped Ovals
Sentiment - Tonic Studios 'Tis The Season' Die Set
Velvet Ribbon
Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Glamour Dust
As you can see I went for an easel card, it was rather a large topper measuring 12 cm across so putting it on an easel card gave me the extra space I needed on the bottom layer for the beautiful sentiment die. I inked through the die with DI and Versamark clear ink and heat embossed it with a glitter EP.
Here's a quick view of the inside and space to write your message.

It's going to be a scorcher here today according to the weather man - it's already 24 degrees. We've been out this morning before it got too hot and so now I'm keeping cool in my craft room.
See you soon,

Just beautiful! The design is splendid, and good thinking to make the image work as you wanted, because it shows off so well with the circle & scallops. Wonderful layers, pretty patterns & color combinations, and I absolutely Love the elegant look of that sentiment. Great job on this challenge. TFS & Hugs
