A Card for the Just Magnolia's "Christmas is coming"

Good Afternoon Everyone, hope you managed to enjoy your extra hour this morning, we were just worrying in case the pup Missy asked us to get up at the usual time (6.00am todays time) but no she slept till almost 7am so that was good, in fact when hubby couldnt wait and longer she was still asleep in her bed. Well todays card has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia's "Christmas is Coming" Challenge, and I have used this sweet image of Tilda and I have coloured her with my copic pens, then cut it out with my rotatrim, I then cut a mount out of blue card and mounted it onto it. The sentiment is one from a freebie set of stamps I received with one of my craft magazines this week, this was also mounted on the same blue card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and one of three papers from First Editions "Christmas Joy" digi papers, the first paper is a cream background with a parcel pattern on it, the second one is a red paper with candycanes on which I have used down one side is a parcel border punch from Martha Stewart, the third paper is a stripped one and this one has been mounted on some more blue card.
Around the middle I have wrapped a piece of white lace and a blue ribbon has been positioned along the top edge and then stuck it to the back of the first mount. The mounted image was then positioned on the right hand side and the sentiment at the bottom on the left hand side.
To finish of I have used three helibores that I have used some blue ink on the edges on top of some punched out leaves and stuck to the card in the top left hand corner with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
