A Card for Sundays with Santa Facebook Challenge

Good Morning Crafters, again I must apologise for not posting any posts on here for a week, but its been a busy week yet again and I was hoping to announce the birth of my first great grandchild but my poor granddaughter in law is still holding on, though the midwife said yesterday that she is now 2cm dilated and it should be here in the next couple of days and if not shes booked in for an induction on Saturday at 2pm so I do hope she has it before then, but I will keep you informed.
Todays card was for this weeks "Never seen Ink" and I have actually used two stamps that I have never used before and the first one I used was the background one which is all over sentiment stamp, and then I wrapped a brown ribbon around the bottom and stuck to the back of the first mount which is brown, the image was stamped onto yet another piece of white card then cut out with my rotatrim and this was then mounted on yet another piece of brown card, this was then placed in the middle towards the top.
To finish of I used some of the brown card to create the poinsetta's at the bottom and then with some yellow stickles in the middle and placed them on some punched out leaves (which are all Nellie punches) and stuck them to the bottom of the card on the left hand side.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
