Christmas in July - Humor card

Last year I participated at the challenge at Catch the bug "Christmas in July" and it was really helpful to start with my Christmas cards, so this year I am planning to join again! This is my fourth entry for this week's challenge at Catch the bug.

I love this Santa, his expresion is so fun...!!! I think it fits perfect for today's challenge and will be great for some male friend. I colored the image with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils, then I put some glitter on the image, not to much... and placed it on a red mat.

I used some stars-red paper (Muresco) and I will tell you a secret, I was planning to use the other side of the paper and I didn´t realize until I finished the card about my mistake... when I finished I thought, the mat is almost invisible, why?, then I've got it... when I tried in the other side (which is white with red stars) it worked much better, but I was tired and didn't want to do it again ;(
(TIP: don´t craft to late at night as you may mistake and don´t want to re-do your job again!)

I also used a Christmas dark red ribbon ('Tis the season), some green circles (sizzix dies) and in each one I put a light green button with a knot made with embroidery thread.
