Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Yes well for me this is a rare treat (at least I hope it is for you to) I have created another card and posted it so thats three in one week, maybe Im starting to turn a corner but then again maybe not. Anyway I bought the 4 new Christmas images from Funky Kits on Saturday and I though I would use this sweet Fairy for my first card, I hope you like it as much as I do, I have coloured her with my copics as always and then used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.8 to cut her out, then used a fancy one for the mount. The sentiment is a Papercrafts die and I have used red card to cut them out with.
The base card is a 7"x 7" yes a different size as the die is quite big, and I have used Joanna Sheen Christmas papers for this card, but Im getting ahead of myself I have used red card for my first mount and I ran it through my embosser with one of the new Embossalious dies, the holly one. I then cut a 6.75" square and used the holly border and corner punches from Martha Stewart to create the first layer, then the Ive done the second one exactly the same but with a 5" square. Then down the middle I have  used a white and holly printed ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then placed in the center and the sentiment down the right hand side. I then punched out holly leaves with two of the Martha Stewart punches and with some berry sprays have created a floral spray in the top left hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
