A Card for Mo's Challenge "Winter"

Good Afternoon All, well I dont know about you but here in Gloucestershire its pouring or rain and its dark its almost as if weve already reached the shortest day of the year, my poor pup each time she goes out she comes back in soaked, and she doesnt take to kindly to being dryed she will run you ragged trying to catch her. Anyway todays card has been created for Mos Challenge "Winter", and Ive used this sweet little elfkin for my card, Ive printed her onto white card then used my copics to colour her out, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Label 22 to cut her out, then used the metal die again to draw around to create the mount for her. The sentiment is one of Pink Gems ones isnt it gorgeous, this has been mounted on a double ended tag die with brads holding it to the base card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card the papers Ive used this time are from the Memory Box "Yuletide" paper pack, the first paper has music notes and song titles on, then on top I have cut a snowflake border with the Memory Box die, and on top is yet a second paper a red background with red spots on, around the middle is a red satin ribbon which has been attached to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, and to finish of Ive used a bauble die cut and glittered it with red glitter and positioned it at the top on the left hand side with a small bow at the top.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
