A Card for Just Magnolia Challenge

Good Morning All, well I was in a ponder yesterday what image to use for this weeks "Sundays with Santa" and this week its "Food" Challenge so I thought after visiting Just Magnolia's "Coffee and Cream" Challenge that I would just try and combine the two and this is what I came up with, I have stamped this little fellow onto white card then used my copics to colour him, afterwards I just a circle Nestabilitie Die to cut him out then used a larger one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been mounted in the same way as the image onto cream card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of cream card and for this card I have used some papers from Donna of Bearlymine's "Vintage" digi downloads, the first paper is a coffee colour background with a sentiment all over, then the second is a cream one and for the last one is another coffee one with roses, I should say this is the sketch for this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge and I felt it was just lovely for this challenge. I then positioned my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of I have taken three white Hellibores and with some coffee and cream catseye inkpads Ive distressed the edges, then stuck them to my card with silicone glue on top of some punched out holly leaves.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
