A Card for this weeks Sundays with Santa - "A Christmas Birthday Card"

Good Morning All, well I must be breaking a rule this week two cards in one week, anyway this weeks challenge over on Facebook was set by me and Im wondering why I picked such a difficult one, I do have a number of Birthdays around Christmas and thought it would be easy to combine the two but it just goes to show it isnt. I came up with this one which is one of the LOV images and coloured it with my copic and tria pens, then used the Nestabilitie Die Labels 1 to cut it out, Ive then drawn around the die to create the mount out of pink card. The sentiment was created on my computer and printed also onto white card then mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and one of three papers from the Nitwit Downloads, the first paper is one from one of the Xmas sets as is the second one which I have used the cherish border punch from Martha Stewart on, the third paper is from the Birthday digi set and has been stuck across the middle.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive used yet another paper from the Xmas set to create a flower which is with the new EK success border flower creator punch and it has been rolled up and with some stamens cut and stuck in the middle, I have stuck it to the card in the top left hand corner on some punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
