A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sundays with Santa Challenges

Good Morning Everyone, well the sun is trying to come out and its dry, but by gum the temperature seems to have gone down, do you think Autumn is on its way? I wouldnt be at all surprise that we dont have a cold winter but I do hope not.
Anyway todays card has been created for the Sugar Bowl Sketch and the Sundays with Santa's "Flowers" Challenges, and I have used this sweet image from Funky Kits and Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels 23 to cut her out then drew around her to create the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, and the two papers I have used are from Donna of Bearlymine Designs new Christmas paper set, they are both with red and pink backgrounds with snowflakes of various sizes on them. These were laid as the sketch requires, and the mounted image was then positioned in the centre.
The sentiment is one from my stash, and to finish of I have placed three poinsetta flowers in the top left hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
