A Card for Sundays with Santa on Facebook - "Baubles"

Good Morning Everyone, today is the birthday of my youngest grandchild, hes now 11 and will be of to Secondary School with his older brother come this September, and if that wasnt the only one of to School my hubbys eldest granddaughter will start School this September as shes 4 in August. Dont these little ones grow up fast, I just carnt get over the fact that my eldest grandson is getting married this August and I dont suppose it will be long before he presents me with a great grandchild, and I know that will really make me feel old, I just wish my lovely mum had lived long enough to see her first great great grandchild, but it wasnt to be.
Now back to my card, this was created for this weeks facebook challenge of "Baubles" as you probably are aware Ive been creating Xmas cards since the first week of January, its a good way of collection a stash of them for this coming Christmas, and this one is created with one of Mo's gorgeous images, Ive printed it onto white card before using my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used a Spellbinders Bauble die to cut it out then used the die to draw around for the mount. The sentiment has also been treated in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card for this one is a pearlescent one thats been but through my cuttlebug with a bauble embossing folder, then on top I have place a snowflake border diecut that I made with my Memory Box die, this was stuck at the bottom. The mounted image was then positioned at an angle and the sentment below on the right.
Now I have a very big truth to tell you, I accidently dropped the top of my inkpad on top of my image and I had one hell of a job to cover up the lines, I know you can just see the shadow but I hope it wont cause you to judge me to much, as I had spent quite a time colouring it and I just didnt want to throw it away.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
