A Card for Mo's Challenge "Any Holiday or Celebrations"

Good Morning Everyone, hope you enjoy Trick or Treating today its amazing how quickly these months are flying by and tomorrow starts November I just can't get my head around it, anyway have a wonderful day. I am going to hospital later on today to have a varicose vein injected, not really looking forward to that just hope its not as painful as the stripping but we shall see, keep your fingers crossed for me as I have plans to go to the NEC on Thursday and I don't want them scuppered.
Well today's card has been created for Mo's Challenge "Any Holiday or Celebrations" and Ive used this sweet candy cane fairy as a Xmas card and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.1 to cut her out, I then used the same die on some pink pearlescent card for the mount, the sentiment is one of the Pink Gem ones that's been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and one of two papers from the First Editions two new Christmas Packs "Christmas Treat and "Festive Joy",  the first paper is a white background with hearts and the second paper is a pink background with candy canes on, and this one has been cut into a strip and Ive used the Martha Stewart Cherish Border Punch along both of the edges then positioned it down the middle of my card. I then wrapped a wide pink satin ribbon around the middle of the card and stuck it to the back of the first mount.
I then used some more of the same pink card and one of the Cherry Lynn Doily dies to cut out a circle and this was then stuck to the left and the mounted image was positioned in the centre of the card, and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive used a white and pink edged Hellebore with two lilies either side in a spray stuck on some silicone glue and punched out leaves in the bottom left hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
