Sunday's with Santa "Anything Goes"

Good Morning Everyone, are you ready for a new week? well as always I seem to be getting behind with everything and that is why Ive not posted anything since last Wednesday, Ive been trying to get ahead with my DT work and so although youve not seen what Ive been making I have been a busy girl. Today I thought that it was time to post a card and this was one I created for last weeks "Sundays with Santa" its a facebook challenge started up by Pops and its to try and get together a good stock of Christmas cards for this December, and as last years lot of all gone I thought well why not so here we are.
This image is one of the LOV stamps and Ive coloured him with my copics then used Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut him out, and then used the same die to create the mount, the sentiment is one that I got free in one of my craft magazines and have mounted it in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a mount of blue pearlescent card, and for my two papers I have used the Maja "Vintage Winter" designs, this was a present from a very special friend of mine, and they are gorgeous and lovely for a card for a male. I then wrapped a sentiment ribbon around the card and attached it to the back.
Then I positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. Ive not added anything else as I dont think men particulary like to many embellishments on their cards and I wanted to leave it simple.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
