Sundays with Santa "Holly"

Good Afternoon Everyone, well its gorgeous outside and quite mild, I will have to take her ladyship out for a walk presently as she always starts to get fidgety about 1.30pm, as hubby normally takes her but as hes volunteering today its my turn to take her. She loves her walk and weve also started letting her of the lead to run around, and she loves that but Id better but my wellies on as the field is still rather wet and muddy and I dont want to come back with all the mud on my shoes as hubby did this morning.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks "Sundays with Santa" challenge over on Facebook, this week its themed "Holly" and I didnt bother looking for an image with holly on I thought as Id printed his gorgeous Paper Shelter one Id use this one instead. I coloured her with my copic and tria pens then used a circle Nestabilie Die to cut her out, and used the picot edged circle die for the mount. The sentiment is a Just Rite stamp thats been cut with a small circle die, Ive coloured the holly also before mounting it on a larger circle mount.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the paper I have used is a Bearlymine Design paper a blue background with sentiments and holly pattern on, Ive then wrapped a white ribbon with holly on around the middle and positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
To finish of Ive cut several holly leaves out of dark green paper and with two holly berries sprays layered them up on the card in the top left hand corner and stuck them to the card with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
