MOJO114 Just in the Nick of Time

Hi friends,
What do you do with your scraps from projects and cards? I keep mine, & create more cards with them! All the cards I will share with you this week came from scrap papers (not all from the same paper line, but I made them work :) Anyhoo, on to my card for this week's MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge:
Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

I went for a rustic (could be for a man) look. The border punch looked like Santa's beard to me so I went with it.

Here's a closer peek at Santa:

Isn't this such a beautiful image! Luuuuv it! I got this last year at Uncle Mike's. I stamped the sentiment so that it would be subtle & kinda blend with the image.

Here's a peek of the inside:

The border along the bottom is the same border punch I used on the front of my card. I simply punched along both edges of my paper to create this border.

Where did you see this paper before??? When I made this card: 

Thanks for peekin' today! I've got Parent-Teacher Conferences this week to get ready for.
Gotta Go!
