Sundays with Santa - "Animals"

Good Morning Everyone, Im so sorry Ive not been posting cards lately but you know from the post below that Im pretty busy with her at the moment, but I will try I promise to visit your blogs for commenting and as and when I get the time will get a card posted here. Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Sundays with Santa and this weeks theme is "Animals" and Ive used this sweet Lili of the Valley image and stamped her onto white card then used my copics and tria pens to colour it, I then used the Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut it out, then used the die yet again and drew around the die to create the mount of red card, the sentiment is yet another of the stamps from LOV and this one has been mounted on red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card with one of three papers from the Papermania Classic Christmas paper set, the first is a white background with dear and holly on, the second is a red polka dot paper and the third is holly design on white paper. The mounted image was then positioned in the centre and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. The final thing is the Poinsetta thats been glittered with stickles and stuck in the top left hand corner with some punched out holly leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
