Fizzy moon christmas card




Hi all
Here is a card I have made using up some of my stash from Trimcraft from last Christmas. I used the fizzy moon decoupage pad,papers and embellies. The gems and white satin  ribbon are as always from meiflower crafts, The scalloped frame around the image is a die from Marianne d. The edge punch is from SU .The sentiment is a free digi from bizzybecs I love this sentiment as it reminds me of  my dad ... Every year when I was a child . He would take me to see santa and  every year he would ask me" if  santa asks you if you have been naughty or nice this year  what will you say?" ....I always replied "I would tell santa I had been nice "
 But one year ...I surprised my dad with the answer ..."That's between me and santa !! his face was a picture and he never asked me again ...lol
