"Shall I Play for You"

Good Evening girls, sorry Im a bit late today posting this but its been a real weird day, its been snowing since 11am and is still doing so now, so Im wondering what we might wake up to tomorrow morning will just have to wait and see I suppose.
Todays card is this gorgeous Drummer Boy image called "Shall I Play for You" from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop and you will find him here, I will also post this card on Mo's Dream Team as well. Ive got to say that whenever I hear the song Drummer Boy it brings tears to my eyes and the way Mo has drawn this little lad makes you well up as he seems to be rather poorly dressed to.
Anyway Ive printed him onto white card then coloured him with my copic pens, after which I cut him out with my oval Nestabilitie Die and mounted it onto a scalloped die cut, the sentiment is one of Whimsey Seal ones and this has been mounted on a scalloped die cuts.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of blue pearlescent card, and two papers from Donna's Bearlymine Design "Christmas Wonderland" digi set, and the first pattern is an all over spot and snowflake design then on top across the middle Ive cut a smaller strip of snowflake paper and used a border punch along both sides then stuck it on top of a strip of the same blue pearlescent card, Ive then wrapped a white ribbon around the middle and tied a bow on the right hand side.
On top of this on the left Ive mounted my image and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of I have created a large snowflake with some punched outs and dipped them in glue and crushed glass glitter, then through the middle Ive put a pearl brad then stuck it at the top on the right.
I will be posting this on:-

Gorgeous card, Shirley, that little dog singing along is so sweet. Wrap up warm, won't you. I must admit I got a bit panicky when the snow was five feet high and had dreams about being seriously snowed in. Hopefully it won't go on for much longer. As a nation we're obviously not as keen on a white Christmas as we thought, are we?
