A Card for Many Challenges

Good Afternoon Ladies, Im sorry to say that this was the best photo I took out of many so you are not going to be able to see the designs on these papers as the damn flash has made the paper shine, I will try and describe them to you, so I must apologise before I start.
This card is for the Just Magnolia challenge "Dawny's Sketch" and any other challenge I can track down, anyway Ive used my new club image of Tilda in her Christmas attire, Ive stamped her onto smooth card and coloured here with my copic pens, after which Ive cut her out with a circle die and stamped some holly leaves around the image with catseye inkpads in various shades of green then popped some red stickles on the berries. The mount is one of the new circle dies from Nestabilities its called Beaded circles its the biggest one of all the new circle dies. The sentiment is one that I got free with one of my craft magazines this was mounted on some red card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with one of three papers this first one is aqua colour with snowflakes on, all these papers are by Bo Bunny and were another freebie from the magazine, maybe this is why they dont stand out to well, anyway the second paper is a red swirl paper and Ive used the snowflake punch in each of the corners. The third paper is a all over Xmas tree pattern in multi colours stripes. Across the middle two mounts Ive wrapped a ribbon around and stuck it to the back before sticking this to the base layer.
The mounted image was then positioned as instructed in the sketch and the sentiment down the side, to finish of Ive punched out some holly leaves with my Martha Stewart punch, and then arranged them under the four poinsetta's, two either side of the image.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
