A Card for Sunday's with Santa - "Anthing Goes"

Good Morning Everyone, hope youve remembered its "Fathers Day" hubby has been going around grinning like a cheshire card with the cards hes received, though a few of our daughters have forgotten, oh well it always happens. Anyway this card today has been created for this weeks challenge over on Facebook Sundays with Santa and this week is a lovely one "Anything Goes" and I thought I would combine it with a few others I can find. This is a lovely image from Penny Black and Ive stamped him onto white card then coloured him with my copics and tria pens before cutting him out with my Nestabilitie No.17 and used the die again to create the mount by penciling around the edge and cutting it out by hand. The sentiment is one of the LOV stamps and this has been cut out with a circle die.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark blue card, and one of two papers from one of the Papermania "Deck the Halls" the first one is a white/beige background with a glittered snowman and on top I have put a strip of blue embossed spot one. The mounted image was stuck towards the right and the sentiment at the bottom on the left. To finish of I have mounted a poinsetta inthe top left hand corner on top of some fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
