Shiny Gold and Vintage Santas

I am having so much fun creating cards for Christmas.
 For this card I pulled out an older stamp I have had for awhile. It is by Paula Best, I always enjoyed her style.  The sentiment is a die from Simon Says Stamp.
 I went a little unusual for my coloring.  I added color with Copic Markers and then added shine with some Distress Spray in Pewter.  That dot background was created with a dot stencil and some gold Embossing paste. I love how this embossing paste looks.  I took this photo at an angle to try to show off the shine of the gold dots. 
 I used the Inkspirational challenge to use Gold.
And the Addicted to CAS challenge to use DOTS.
And the Wednesday Simon Says challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Gorgous background. Love how the embossing paste makes the dots look 3 dimensional.
Thank you for playing with us at INK for our "Gold" challenge.
