"Sundays with Santa"

Good Morning All, hope you are enjoying yet another bank holiday weekend, the sun isnt to bright today its rather cloudy but Im keeping my fingers crossed it cheers up later on. Anyway todays card has been created for the Sundays with Santa Challenge over on Facebook that Pops started up just after Xmas if youd like to take part you are more than welcome and start to get your stock of cards up ready for the end of the year, if you do here is the link, its a good way of at least getting together at least a sizeable pile. This weeks challenge is theme "Anything Goes" and so its an easy one. Ive used this sweet LOV image for my card and stamped her onto white card before colouring her with my Copic and Tria pens, I then cut her out with the Nestabilitie die No.9 and then drawing around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is yet one more of the LOV stamps and this has been given the same treatment.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and one of three papers from Donna's Bearlymine Xmas papers released last Christmas, the first one is a pretty red background with a lace edge and a picture of Santa Claus in the bottom left hand corner, then across the middle I have used a red and white spotted paper thats been punched along both edges with a snowflake punch, on top of this is the third paper a pink and white sentiment one.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle over a Cherry Lyn die cut doily with the sentiment below on the left hand side, to finish of I created a flower spray with three poinsetta's in the top left hand corner and stuck them to my card with silicone glue and some punched out holly leaves.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
