A Card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge - "A Sketch"

Good Morning Everyone, well the sun is out and its quite warm outside, Ive just been into town to pick up my magazines and to give the pup a walk, this is the first time Ive done that for about a month so it was just nice to escape from four walls, and it certainly shattered the pup shes now whacked out asleep by the side of my computer desk.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge "A Sketch" and Ive used this sweet digi image for my card and coloured it with my copics before cutting it out with my Nestabilitie Die No.1 and then drew around the die to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one of the Whimsey Christmas stamps from last year and Ive cut this out with a circle die and mounted it on a larger diecut.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of turquoise blue card and one of two papers from The First Edition "Christmas Joy" paper pack this first paper is a patterned one with snowmen and penquins on a blue background, on top is a stripped one in similar colour tones, across the card Ive then wrapped a film strip ribbon of snowmen and penquins to and attached it to the back of the first mount, The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
