A Card for LOV Challenge - "Alternative Christmas"

Good Afternoon Ladies I suspect you are all looking forward to the weekend lets hope the weather improves as its not particularly nice today, anyway todays card is for this weeks Lili of the Valley's "Alternative Christmas", and Ive used this sweet image of a teddy bear carrying his pressies, and although Ive used conventional colours for him I just couldnt bring myself to colour him differently so I hope it wont upset the applecard. Ive coloured him with my copic pens and then with some quickie glue and glitter on his hat I then used the new Labels Nestabilitie die No.15 its a really lovely one this time, I then used the die to create the mount out of some dark mauve card. The sentiment is yet another of the LOV stamps, this was cut out with the ribbon tag.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with the first layer of the same dark card with one of two papers I found in a magazine, a very dark mauve background with white snowmen, snowflakes and snowballs on it, on top of this Ive stuck a square of pink snowflake paper that has been punched around the edge with a snowflake border punch by Martha Stewart. Then across the bottom Ive put my sentiment which has a spotted ribbon threaded through the holes and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was positioned in the middle on the square and Ive popped a snowman button at the top on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
