A Card for Sundays with Santa

Good Morning Crafters, well the sun is out and its looking a hell of a lot better than last Saturday and Missy will get her walk today which she missed last week. This weeks Challenge was to create a Christmas Card with non-traditional colours, and I chose this sweet image from Magnolia and coloured her in blues and greens then used a Ornament Die from Nestabilitie to cut it out then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one of my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of brown card, the papers I have used are from Carta Bella's "Christmas Day" paper set, both the designs are of Christmas Ornaments and I have used a beige background for the first paper and the second is a strip that has had both edges punched with a ornament border punch from Martha Stewart and stuck down the center of the first layer.
I then cut another ornament design out and ran through my eBosser with a embossing folder, this was then placed in the bottom left hand corner and my mounted image was placed towards the top in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
