Card for Mo's Challenge "Patchwork"

Good Afternoon, I know I know I havent posted anything this week since Sunday but Ive just finished this card for this weeks Mo's Challenge of "Patchwork" and thought it was time I better get a move on and post it. I have used this sweet image of a "Urchin" for my card as Im trying to get my Christmas Cards made and this one was ideal for one of them, Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic's to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.17 to cut her out then used the die again for the mount, the sentiment is one from my stash and has been used in the same was as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount Ive used a piece of red card and again Ive used this fabulous new "First Edition" paper pad "Festive Treats" was just right for this challenge, the first paper is a patchwork one and I have used this one and two others mounted them onto red card and then used my sewing machine to zigzag around the edges of them, I then mounted them and wrapped a sentiment ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount. The mounted image was then positioned towards the left hand side and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I punched out some stars and glittered them with large glitter and small, these were then positioned at the top on the right.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
