A Card for Just Magnolia Challenge - "A Sketch by Dawn"

Good Afternoon everyone hope you are having a nice Saturday, here in Gloucester the sun has been out but its now gone cloudy I do hope it doesnt decide to start raining or poor hubby is going to get wet as hes volunteering today and I suspect hes probably painting posts and that wont be much fun for him.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge "Sketch by Dawn" and Ive used this sweet image of Tilda carrying her presents and candy, Ive stamped her and coloured her with my copic pens, after which Ive used the rectangle Nestabilitie die to cut her out and a deckled edged one for the mount. The sentiment is yet again one of the LOV ones as the Magnolia ones were just to big for the sketch.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card and one patterned paper from the Papermania Classic Christmas paper/card set, this paper is a tartan one which I felt went well with my image, on top of this I have stuck a piece of red pearlescent card that has been run through my cuttlebug with a all over holly pattern, and my stamped mounted image was stuck in the middle on top. The sentiment was laid by the side of this card, and to finish of Ive used two white poinsettas that have been stuck to the card on top of some punched out holly leaves, and the last thing are two heart gems that were stuck at the top on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
