"Sundays with Santa"

Good Morning Everyone, strictly speaking there wasnt a theme for this week and as Id already printed this little beauty out I thought I would use it to create a Christmas card and put it away for then. Ive used Mo's gorgeous little Lhasa Apso for my card Ive coloured her/him with my copic pens then sued Nestabilitie Die Labels No.16 to cut it out then used the die again to create the mount, the sentiment is one from my stash thats been mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and Ive used three papers from the First Editions "Festive Treats" paper pad, the first paper is a patchwork of squares and on top is a red star paper and for my third is a sentiment one. I then wrapped two ribbons around the centre and attached to the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of I have used three poinsettas in a spray and stuck them to my card in the top left hand corner on to some punched out holly leaves, and to glitter them up Ive used stickles on the petals.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
