Sundays with Santa - "Baubles"

Good Morning Everyone, well the sun is out and Im hoping it stays that way but know our luck I somehow doubt it. Hubby is trying to fix a another socket for me, so all the electricity downstairs is all turned of so Ive been banished upstairs out of the way, and Missy is in her cage having a snooze. She was very late this morning actually managed to sleep till 6.30am when I went down to let her out,normally she has us up a lot earlier than that, but perhaps shes begining to realise we oldies need a bit of a lie in you never know your luck.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Sundays with Santa "Baubles" Challenge over on Facebook, and Ive used this sweet image of Mo Mannings "Babys 1st Christimas", Ive printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, Ive also used some glossy accents for the bauble, then cut it out with the circle Nestabilitie Die and the lacey circle for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and I believe its one of Pink Gems clear ones, and Ive also used the smaller lacey die for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and I only used one paper and this is one of Donna's Bearlymine Designs its from her "Christmas Dreams" digi set, and its a red background with lots of baubles on it, on top of this around the middle I have wrapped a red spot wired ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount, then I cut a bauble out of the same red card from one of the Spellbinders Heirloom Set, and ran it through my cuttlebug in a bauble embossing folder this was then positioned to the left of the card.
I then stuck my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of I have stuck three baubles down the right hand side, these were made with some shrink plastic many moons ago.
