Merry Monday 118

Hi friends! Yes, another Christmas Card...but in my defense there's a lot of Christmas in July challenges going on, lol, not that I need an excuse! I pulled out my Prisma Pencils to color this cute Recollections Santa. Love white pencil on Kraft CS, as I've said before. 
I'm following the Merry Monday Challenge 118 to use button(s) and ribbon on your card. I also used the Mojo Monday Sketch 355, do you recognize it? I changed it a bit by moving the flag element to the right side and changing the flags to tags! It fit my card better not to cover up the left side. The paper is K& Co. 
The tags and sentiment are from PTI Tiny Tags set. Sheesh, making flat cards for mailing is just not happening lately! 
Other items: Momento Rubarb Stalk and Cottage Ivy Ink. CTMH Black ink, Joannes ribbon, May Atrs twine, Button who knows? lol

The inside.

Some other Challenges I'm linking to are:
Bloggers Challenge -Xmas in July
Jelly Park Challenge -Xmas in July
Creative Knockouts -Xmas in July
There are a ton more challenges I could link to but I'm too tired!
