A Card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge - Sketch by "Dawny P's"

Good Morning Ladies, hope you are enjoying your weekend and todays card is for this weeks Lili of the Valley Challenge, a sketch by Dawny P but with a Christmas theme, Ive used this image from last year for my card, not quite sure what the little animal is but its definitely a cute one. Ive stamped it onto white card and coloured it with my copics and promarkers, I find the red promarker is a lot richer than the one in the copic range. Ive also put some glitter on all the fluffy bits then cut it out with my Nestabilitie Die number four after I cut it out I used the die to draw around to make the mount, this was done on some red card. The sentiment is one I found in my stash I think its a JM one but not totally sure.
Ive created a 6"x 6" card with a first layer of red card and one of three papers from the new Papermania Silent Night pattern range, a pretty red and green design on cream paper. The middle mounts are of equal size but Ive used two papers for this one, the outer two are a cream based paper with a holly pattern on, the centre strip is an over sentiment one. Then across all three Ive stuck a green ribbon and attached it to the back of the first layer, then stuck my mounted image on top of the card with the sentiment at the bottom in the middle. To finish of Ive arranged three poinsetta flowers in the top left hand corner.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges:-

Hi Shirley, wow this is fabulous, it really is,I am not sure what the animal is, there's a thought: get everyone to guess what it is next time you use it, when commenting, I think it is little doggy, it has some mega ears.
hope you are well love chris xx
have a great weekend Shirley

Hi Shirly

What a fab card adn I am so impressed with you getting some crimbo ones done so early.

Thanks for you kind wishes as well. It's a very slow process, or at least seems like it to impatient me, but you know us MS girls take twice as long getting over these things.
