A Card for Mo's Challenge "Banners or Tags"

Good Morning Everyone, you now how it is you think youve covered everyone then you find a card turns up and youve no idea who the person is, but with a little detective work from hubby he managed to see that the postmark on the envelope and discovered it was from Norwich, and as my grandson lives in Norwich we guess it was from his future in-laws, so mystery solved, and one rushed person trying to get another Xmas card done and finished this morning ready for hubby to post in the morning.
Ive created my card from this sweet image from Mo Manning, Ive coloured her with my copic's then used Nestabilitie Die No.11 to cut her out, then done my usual thing with the mount. The sentiment is one of Pink Gems ones and Ive treated that in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark blue card and one paper from Donna of Bearlymine Designs "Christmas Wishes" digi paper set, a dark blue with lots of sentiments and snowflakes on. The next mount was a 5" square that Ive used my snowflake border and corner punch on from Martha Stewart. Ive created the banner with some letters I created in MCS and printed them of, then used a Whimsey banner stamp and punch to create the sections for my banner, these were then stuck to the card on a strip of white ribbon and foam.
The mounted image was postioned on the right with the sentiment at the bottom on the left, the final thing I did was put some glitter on the letters and used the punched out snowflakes to just dot and spot all over the place stuck down with some glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
