Crafty Ann's Challenge #51 - Be inspired by your favourite Christmas song

Another fortnight has flown by and we were treated to a lovely array of cards/projects for the last challenge.  This fortnight the topic is "be inspired by your favourite Christmas song".
For my card I have used Crafty Ann's digital image of Santa stuck up in the chimney so the song that comes to mind for me is "when Santa got stuck up the chimney"!!  I have coloured the snowglobe with Promarkers and highlighted areas with Sakura Stardust clear pen.  I decided to go for a non-traditional Christmas colour scheme of green and black so it can be for a male.  I have used one of the Crafty Ann's green and black background papers along with a green polished stone paper and scraps of green and black cardstock from my scraps box.  The card has been finished off with some My Minds Eye brads which I got in some candy, card candy, black ribbon and a sentiment off the snow globe sheet.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Hi Kym
