A Card for Kennys Challenge "2 x 2" Receipe

Good Morning Ladies well the sun is out and its quite lovely outside though how long it will last we shall have to wait and see, hubby has gone of to London to visit his daughter and granddaughters and he did it in good time he left here at 8am and arrived at Clacketts Lane at 12 noon, so I think he did well, mind you he did stop at Purley for a cup of tea.
Anyway todays card (which will be put away for hubby) has been created for Kennys Challenge "2 x 2" Receipe challenge which means you have to use two papers, two ribbons and two flowers. I printed this image onto smooth white card and coloured it with my copic pens and then used large glitter for the fluffy bits on her custume, hat and boots I cut it out with my new Nestabilitie die 17, and then draw around the edge to create the mount out of red card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of red card and two fabulous Xmas papers from Donna of Bearly Mine designs, she has a sale on her website tomorrow and a brand new set of papers, I do so hope you will pop across and visit her. Ive used an all over sentiment one for my first paper in red and white and this has been mounted on some red card, for my second paper Ive used a white base card with two snowmen on and another sentiment, this was also punched with my snowflake in each of the corners before sticking it to another piece of red card and placed on top of the first mount.
I then wrapped two ribbons around the edge on the left which look a bit crooked but I assure you it isnt in real life must be my photo, and mounted my image in the centre, to finish of Ive used two poinsetta's at the top on the right and laid them on top of some punched out holly leaves and these were attached to the card with some silicone glue, I then used some stickles to glitter up the petals.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Wow Shirley, what can I say, she's one sexy babe for your hubby to set his eyes upon for Christmas (not that you aren't of course) and I know he's going to love the card, it's gorgeous, and such perfect choice of papers for her too. Love the ribbon touch and the flowers are glorious.
Am feeling a bit better today, but me thinks it's a trip to the doctors tomorrow if I'm not better by tonight. Thanks for playing along with our challenge this week at KKKG.
big hugs
