A Card for Mo's Challenge - "Vellum or/& Acetate"

Now I before I start I received some fabulous news yesterday morning, and Im so cockahoop that I didnt know what had hit me, Im like a dog chasing her tail, Ive been invited to join Mo's Dream Team as a Guest Designer for the month of December, and of course Im absolutely thrilled at the prospect.
Todays card has been created for this weeks Mos Challenge "Vellum or/& Acetate" and Ive used Vellum for my card, this image is "Robin" and you will find it here and I think hes gorgeous, Ive printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, after which Ive cut it out with the large Rectangle Nestabilitie Die, and then used the large Scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one of the new Whimsey seal stamps you will find them at Bunny-Zoes, Nikki has them in stock if you are interested, they are gorgeous.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of white pearlescent card, and one of Donnas fabulous new digi paper set called "Christmas Dreams" and you should visit her webshop at the moment as she has a stunning 15% discount sale at the moment, its to celebrate her birthday on the 15th, it carrys on till the 19th November so dont delay, get over there now.
This paper is very pretty blue one with hearts and scrolls over, then Ive used my acetate and printed the same design on it, cut it into an oblong then used my snowflake all around punches from Martha Stewart and afterwards stuck it to the left of my card, on top of this I have positioned my mounted image. Then put the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive cut out several snowflakes from the rest of my acetate and positioned them down the right hand side in random places.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
