A Card for two Challenges

Good Afternoon Ladies, well its gone extremely cloudy here this afternoon and its been raining and my dear hubby says we are actually in for some over the weekend I do hope hes wrong about that, but we shall just have to wait and see. We did walk into town this morning when the sun was out to have our flu jabs done so thank goodness for that I would have hated getting wet. Anyway todays card has been created for two Challenges Lili of the Valleys "Winter Fun" and Winter Wonderlands "A Receipe, two papers, 1 ribbon and 1snowflake and charm" and Ive used this sweet bear image from LOV and coloured it with my copic pens after which Ive cut it out with my circle nestabilitie die and used the new Lacey circle die for the mount, the sentiment is another of the LOV stamps and this was cut out with the label die and mounted on a piece of red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card and one of two papers from the New Papermania Paper pack "Peppers Christmas Party", the first paper is a white base with present pattern all over it, the second paper is mounted on a aqua blue card with a paper with a white base and acqu coloured snowflakes all over it. I then wrapped a ribbon around the middle with a lace strip, this I have discovered I have put on upside down, but it is a red ribbon I assure you thats been attached to the lace, daft arnt I?
Anyway I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive punched out two snowflakes with my Martha Stewart punches, then dipped them into glue and crushed glass glitter, they were then mounted up with a snowflake charm hung from the second lower one.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
