Santa for Sunday Card and two other Challenges

Good Morning All, sorry Ive been a bit lapse this week posting any cards its been one of those weeks, I have been making cards but I carnt post them yet due to my DT commitments, anyway for the next 3 days on my No.1 blog there will be a card a day on there and hopefully even one for today if I can get my arse into gear and finish of one Ive already started.
Anyway todays card is mainly for my weekly  challenge card for the Santa for Sunday Challenge over on Facebook, if youve not seen whats going on perhaps it might be a good idea to pop across and have a look, heres the link theres no prize its just a way of collecting a stash of Xmas cards for next Christmas, anyway this weeks challenge is to create a card without Green, and hopefully this one will fit the bill, Im also going to enter it into the Bah Humbug's "Christmas Trees" and Winter Wonderland's "Baubles" and hope they will accept it for both of those as well. Anyway Ive used this image from Whiff of Joy its called "Drummer Boy" and coloured it with my promarkers, Im not so keen on these pens as the nib is so fat and Im also not sure how to get the blending right as I can with my Copics I suppose its just a matter of practicing so this is my second attempt to do that. I then cut it out with my Rectangle Nestabilitie Die and cut a larger one for the mount from a piece of blue pearlescent card, the sentiment is the first line of the song "Little Drummer Boy" and I printed it from my computer and mounted it in the same way as the image.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card with one of two papers from the Papermania pad "Winter Wonderland" this first paper has an all over pattern of baubles and fir trees and sentiments, the second mount is a blue pattern background with just fir trees on it, this also has been mounted on another piece of the same blue card and positioned to the left of the card, I then stuck my mounted image towards the top in the middle, and the sentment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of Ive used some shrink plastic and created some baubles, coloured them, then shrunk them to a small size before sticking them down the card on the tree branches.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
