A Card for Crafters Companion "Christmas Wishes" Challenge

Good Afternoon All, well the sun is out and hubby has got the grass cut though I do see its a bit uneven in places but I suspect that might be because its been so wet, never mind Missy wont hopefully get her tummy wet so much. She now also 6 months old and is going for her first hair cut on Monday and weve had to resort to getting tablets for her as she doesnt travel to well in the car, she gets very sick we are hoping that these will help her and stop it, will let you know if it works.
Well todays card has been created for this months Crafters Companion "Christmas Wishes" Challenge, and I have used the freebie stamp from one of the craft magazines of Humphrey pulling his reindeer through the snow, Ive stamped him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him. I then used a square Nestabilitie die to cut him out and used the Eyelet Square for the mount. The sentiment is one that came with the stamp.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card and Ive used blue pearlescent card for the first mount and one of two papers from the Humphreys Xmas Cd that I received last week, the first paper is a blue one with what looks like snowflakes on, on top is a square of red sentiment paper which was cut into a 5" square and Ive used a snowflake border and corner punch on, and placed it on top of the first mount.
Around the centre I have wrapped a wide Christmas ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount, and then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have placed two punched out snowflakes in the top left hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
