"Sundays with Santa" - Traditional Colours

Good Morning Everyone, Im so sorry for not posting for awhile but it was an extremely busy week last week, I had a blood pressure test on Wednesday and a Mamogram on Friday, plus all my DT work I never seem to have enough time just to create a card to post, instead I had a load to do for future Challenges instead so you will have to be a little patient. This card Im posting today was created for yesterdays Sundays with Santa Challenge "Tradition Colours" and Ive used this sweet image and coloured it with my copic pens then used the Nestabilitie Label die No.17 to cut it out then drew around the die to create the mount, the sentiment was one I had as a freebie in one of my craft magazine.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and then Ive used one of the Maja "Vintage Winter" paper a lovely blue background with a Santa in the corner. I then used some white pearlescent card and three of the Memory Box dies to create a corner a border and a Xmas tree which have been placed in several places. The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the setniment at the bottom on the right.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
