A Card for Sunday's with Santa on Facebook

Good Afternoon Everyone, its a beautiful sunny day here in Gloucestershire and quite warm, I do hope its here to stay as it makes you feel good, and our dog had a lovely walk this afternoon though she did get a bit hot. Never mind thank goodness its a dry day, its also the 48th anniversary of my baby sons death, although it get easier as the years go by, it doesnt stop you thinking or remembering what happened on that date, and I also wonder how well he would have grown up especially as my future may have taken a different turn, oh well you just have to accept what youve got.
Todays card has been created for this weeks challenge over on Facebook its Sundays with Santa's "Christmas Birthday Card" although I dont actually have any girls whose birthday is at Xmas I do have several boy ones, not to worry perhaps I can pass it onto someone who does. Ive used this gorgeous image from Sugar Nellie and coloured it with my copic pens, then Ive used Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut it out and a larger die for the mount. The sentiment was one I created on my computer and printed it and mounted it also onto some red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and one of three papers from the Nitwits "Gingerbread" paper set, the first a pink background with lady gingerbread people on, and the second is a cream background with fir trees on, and Ive used the Martha Steward Xmas Tree border punch on both edges, then of top is a further paper which is also pink background with heart candy canes on.
I then cut out the reindeer in the left hand bottom corner and stuck it down there, the mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment along the top for a change as it wouldnt fit at the bottom.
This Card it so to be entered in the following Challenges:-
