A Card for Sundays with Santa on Facebook - "A Card for a Child"

Good Morning Everyone, wow isnt this weather fabulous, mind you I carnt sit it in to long as I get to hot and sweaty but I do like it so wont moan, especially as we are of to Cornwall on Monday for 4 days and I would prefer it to be dry and sunny rather than cold and wet, so wish us good luck it stays dry at least. Back to todays card this is for this weeks Sundays with Santa Challenge on Facebook, for this we want a card for a child, and Ive used this sweet image from Mo Manning and its called "Baby Girls 1st Christmas" so I felt it was just right for a the challenge, and tis one Ive not used before and I printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens then used Nestabilitie Label Die No.17 to cut it out then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment was created on my computer and printed and mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, on this I have layered a paper from Donna's Christmas Digi Set, its a gorgeous one with a Santa figure in the bottom left hand corner and a beautiful design in the top right. I then cut out two corners and one bottom strip with my Memory Box Christmas Dies, and then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment below on the right hand side.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
