Santa 2.0

Another "just in case" Christmas card as I won't be sending out much, if any, this year.
With round vintage Christmas cut-outs that are in my stash from my last Santa project, I decided to make another festive card. And since I liked the previous layout, I actually didn't change much - same pattern, same colours, same background paper, even same pearls & gems.
One difference of course is the picture of the old man, and, in detail, also the golden sticker I added this time. I'm not sure whether it's the right fit and I'm not quite happy with it. It looks a little too bold for me, but I really wanted to finally use up this set of stickers and this one was the only one left.
A little contribution to the December collection of Create in Austria - artwork created by Austrians and/or in Austria.
