A Card for Mo's Challenge - "Glitz and Glimmer"

Good Morning Ladies, I hope the snow has stopped in your neck of the woods, weve still got a layering but luckily its not to deep but it is impacted and icy so you have to watch yourself when walking on it, and by the gringe its cold as well, it was below -5 last night and I actually woke up feeling cold in bed this morning so Im well and truly wrapped up now.
Todays card has been created for this weeks "Glitz and Glimmer" challenge of Mo's and Ive used this gorgeous image of "Pammy on Christmas Morning" and you will find it here I printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens after which I used the Nestabilitie Label 17 to cut her out and then used it again to draw around for my mount from red card. The sentiment is one of the Just-Rite circle stamps and this was done in the same way as the image but Ive used a circle die to cut it out instead.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card and one of three papers from Kay Miller Downloads and this set are called "Frosty Friends" and the first paper is an all over snowflake design of serveral colours, the second paper is a red one which Ive cut in a square and on top I have put the third paper a diamond design around which I have tied a red snowflake ribbon.
The mounted image was then positioned to the left hand side and my sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive created three snowflakes with my Martha Stewart punches which have been layered up in twos and I firstly popped them in some crushed glass glitter and then stuck them down the right hand side of the card.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
