Edwin or Santa?

Good morning! This is the card I made for our Magnolia-licious November sketch. No one has more Magnolia-liciousness in her than our Kerry! she created this sketch for us and isn't it great! Love a card where I can use 3 patterns of paper! Thanks, Kerry! Details are at the Magnolia Highlites blog. Please join the design team and create your own card with this sketch for the chance to win a Magnolia stamp from Diana! There are some new Santa images coming from Magnolia to Diana's store. This is a "Santa" from last year. Or, I think it could be Edwin because he actually has JEANS on!! I decided to color them red anyway, but I'm thinkin' maybe it's Edwin dressed as Santa?
My card base is Kraft card stock and the dp is from a small pad by DCWV that I got at JoAnn's. I love the rich colors and teal with red and green! Oh, my, it's great! I used some SU snowflakes from a couple of different sets and there's lot of SU glitter on his tree. (I just couldn't get a good picture this morning!)
The tag is cut from cardboard on my cuttlebug with a Sizzix die that has three sizes of tags. I just sponged the edges with distress ink.
My card is 5X 5". Colors are listed below.

Note to Jenn-thanks for asking about the snowflakes. I don't know how to contact you, so I will look for Anna Wight's post on how to make them and post it here as soon as I get the chance! 'kay?
Have a great Thursday!!
