And now for something completely different

Usually my cards tend toward the sweet and cute but every once in awhile I need to do something just a bit startling. I think you'll all agree that this card is definitely "startling".

The image is from Just Inklined and I just couldn't pass it up when I first saw it. It is quite horrendous, huh? Like something out of a bad nightmare. This isn't the "best" card I've ever made from a technical or artistic perspective but I still decided that it had to be shared just to give everyone a laugh.
I chose a very traditional Santa paper to contrast with the non-traditional image. The sentiment inside the card reads "Come on Santa ... jingle these bells". This is, of course, referring to the bells that are hanging from the ribbon ... I'm sure that's what you were thinking too (LOL).
