Another one card for Two Challenges

Again I have cheated and created one card to cover two challenges, the Just Magnolia Challenge, Christmas Card and Stampin for Weekend Challenge, blue and brown. I made a bit of a fopah when I started colouring my image I thought it was green and blue, so we have a green parcel so sorry about that. Anyway Ive used one of the new Magnolia Christmas stamps for this card and coloured her with my copic pens, after which I cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her up on some blue pearlescent card. The greeting is one of Hero Arts stamps that Ive stamped onto white card and mounted it in the same was as my image.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of dark blue card and one of two design papers that Ive printed from the Nitwit downloads, the first one is a all over snowflake design in blue and white. For my second layer Ive used a pretty brown paper with springs of leaves all over it, this was mounted onto brown card and stuck at an angle across the base layer. For my third layer Ive used a dark blue pearlescent paper with my new Trellis border punch by Martha Stewart, Ive done a double sided strip and layered a piece of ribbon across the centre and stuck them to the back of my first mount.
The stamped image was then stuck to the centre of my card and the greeting to the right hand side at the bottom. To finish of Ive created two flowers from some more of the same design papers and some silver spacers were popped through holes in the centres with some pearl brads with a sleigh charm hanging from the bottom one, after which I have stuck them onto the card with some silicone sitting on some punched out fern leaves.
