A Card for Sundays with Santa "Polka Dots" Challenge

Good Afternoon Everyone, well its gorgeous here the sun is out and its quite warm outside, our dog sat on the back doorstep for awhile today and seemed to really enjoy it. Shes of for a trim on Monday not so sure she enjoy that but it has to be done every two months. Well todays card has been created for this weeks Sundays with Santa Challenge and this time it involved Polka Dots, and Ive used these fabulous ones from Donna of Bearlymine Designs, oh while Im about it we are due to start Challenges again on the 20th March so keep your eyes open for the first one then.
I have used this gorgeous LOV image for my card and coloured it with my copic pens then used a circle Nestabilitie die to cut it out. I then picked up all the colours from my image and found the corresponding papers to go with it. I used my Martha Steward border punch down all the edges then layered them up and stuck them to a 6"x 6" white card on top of a piece of blue card.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, and to add the final flourishes with a snowman button and a punched out snowflake.
