Card for the Joanna Sheen "Christmas Wishes" Challenge

Good Afternoon Everyone, Im so sorry for it being so long since I posted a card here its because I have been so busy getting a blog hop organised and launched, by the way it started today over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot I do hope that you will pop across to my other Blog to see what Ive been upto.
Anyway back today card it has been created for the new Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog, and Ive been an avid collector of all Joanna Sheen things and thought I ought to make the effort to take part, so for a change I have used the House Mouse Christmas Decoupage for my card (by the way its only £4.50 over on the JS website) and have mounted the image onto some bright red card I got from Hunkydory.
The base card is a 8"x 8" card for a change and Ive used the papers from the Thomas Kinkade Christmas CD for the backing papers on this card, its a red one with lots of snowmen on it. On top is a 5" square of white pearlescent card that I put through my Grand Calibur with a mica mask and unfortunately as the card was so thick its not showing to well.
Anyway I layered up these tow then wrapped a Xmas ribbon around the centre and attached it to the back of the first mount of red card by the way, then around the edges I have used several Memory Box and Cherry Lynn die cuts and positioned my main image in the centre.
I then created a sentiment on my computer, I hope you like its pun, and created a flower spray in the top left hand corner using three poinsettas, holly berries, and two fir cones, these were all attached to the card with some silicone glue on top of some punched out holly leaves,
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
