Sundays with Santa - "Receipe"

Good Morning All, well I have managed to get another card created for posting, but I havent been lazy I had two special cards to create and I did manage to get them made yesterday and finished of this morning. Hubby has gone to London to visit his granddaughter who was 3rd yesterday and I have a grandson to ring later as its hes 11th birthday today and I must try and sing him Happy Birthday. I know you must thing they are cluttons for punishment but all my grandchildren seem to enjoy my ringing them on their birthdays and singing that to them, I suspect things will change as they get older but you never know. They all seem to enjoy my homemade cards so at least thats a relief.
Anyway todays card has been created for Sunday's with Santa Challenge on Facebook, Im a couple of weeks behind with my challenge cards but I thought Id better make a start on catching up with them. Ive used this gorgeous from Penny Black and Ive coloured her with my copic pens then layered it up on some red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card with one of Donna of Bearlymine Designs Xmas papers, a pretty red background with a lace edge and a very pretty corner, on top of this I have wrapped a wide wired ribbon around the middle and then on top I positioned my mounted image in the centre. I then stuck a triple snowflake in the top of the left hand corner and on the right are three snowmen buttons down the top right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
