"Sundays with Santa" - shaped Card

Good Afternoon Everyone, well its been a busy day so far for us, we went to Chepstow to do our monthly shop and that took us 3 hours so you can well understand why everything is a bit behind. Anyway Ive just posted this on facebook as this is where the Challenge is and this week its Shaped Card. The card will be but away for a special friend of mine, I wont disclose her name as it wouldnt be a surprise would it.  Ive used this gorgeous Penny Black image which Ive had in my stash for quite a long time the stamp itself is over a year old, and coloured it with my copic and tria pens, then used my rotatrim to cut it out. The base card is 6"x 11" which has been folded to create this shape and Ive used one pattern paper from the My Minds Eye paper pack that I got from one of my Craft magazine it was a freebie this month.
I then put my image in the centre and used a sentiment ribbon across the bottom underneath, to finish of I used two of my poinsettas as embellishments with some stickles on the petals.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
