A Card for Sundays with Santa Facebook Challenge - "Non Traditional Colours"

Good Morning fellow Crafters, well its not raining at the moment but the clouds are on their way back so I guess we shall have some presently. My hubby and I are feeling rather tired this morning as our dog Missy was up every 2 hours with a tummy problems (I wont go into details) and needed to go outside, poor little girl she really did look sorry for herself this morning. She unfortunately does have a sensitive stomach and it causes no end of problems and this is probably a bug shes picked up with her sniffing in places she shouldnt. Ive rung the Vet (even on a Sunday) and shes suggested just giving her a Kaolin paste and no food so keep your fingers crossed it works as we certainly need a good night sleep tonight.
Todays card has been created with the Knitted Heart image from Funky Kits and as the Challenge is all about non traditional colours for a Christmas card I had to put my thinking cap on and this is what I came up with, I coloured her with my copics then cut her out with the new Labels 34 from Nestabilities and I have used a fancy one for the mount. The sentiment was stamped onto a banner and cut out and another for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of purple card and the papers are from Nitwits "Snow Princess" digi paper set, the first a purple paper with white stars on and the second is a floral one which I have cut a strip and I have used a snowflake border punch from Martha Stewart. The third a green strip one.
I then placed my mounted image in the center and stuck three different sized pearls down the side in the two alternative corners and the sentiment across the bottom.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
