A Card for this weeks "Sundays with Santa" Facebook Challenge

Good Morning Everyone, I hope its dry in your neck of the woods it is here so Im keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way as I have to take the dog for a walk later and perhaps cut the grass as well, but it been so wet lately and its grown so fast so Im not looking forward to doing it. Anyway this weeks theme on Sundays with Santa is "Shades of Blue" and I rather cheated by also using this card for Facebooks Sugary Sunday "Things with Wings" challenge. The image was stamped onto white card and Ive coloured it with my copic pens, then used Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut her out and a larger one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash thats been mounted onto another a blue mount to.
This card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the papers I have used is Donna's Bearlymine "Christmas Fun" digi paper set, the first one is a pale blue background with stars, the second is a darker background with larger stars on, I cut this in a strip and used the fir tree border die from Memory Box, then on top is another sentiment paper thats been mounted on a piece of more blue card.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre, with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, for the last flourish I have used the Deer Trio also from Memory Box thats been stuck in the bottom left hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
