Sundays with Santa - "Ribbons"

Good Morning Everyone, well I dont know about you but its turned extremely cold again and still windy and Im right fed up with it how about you? Anyway todays card has again been created for this weeks challenge on Facebook Sundays with Santa "Ribbons" Challenge and Ive used this sweet Hedgie image from Penny Black to make my card, Ive used my copic pens to colour it then used a large Rectangle Nestabilitie die to cut it out and a larger one for the mount. The sentiment is yet another from the LOV stamps range and Ive used one of the new ribbon banners from Spellbinders.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and one of four papers from Donna's Bearlymine Xmas papers, the first one a red back ground with white snowflakes and one top is a second mount with white background and different coloured fir trees, and then a strip of blue with parcels on and a punched border of snowflakes, then the last mount is a white paper with fir trees in red and blue then around the middle Ive wrapped a wide red ribbon with gold edges and holly leaves, then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom right hand corner.
To finish of Ive popped four discs (that spell snow) that have had a ribbon threaded through the holes and hung from the top of the card.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
