A Card for two Challenges

Well you are in for a second post today as tomorrow is my Birthday and we are expecting to go out for the day so I thought as Id made such a boo boo over the LOV card that I would treat you to another one instead. This one has been created for Mo's "Swirls and Flourishes" and Cute Card's "Blast from the Past",  Ive created this card with the Sketch from Claudia from Challenge 117, and Ive used this fabulous image of Mo's "Santas Helper's" this is one of pair of cuties, and Ive printed him onto white card then coloured him with my copic pens. I then used the Labels 17 from Nestabilities and drew around the die edge to create the mount, the sentiment is one of the new LOV seal stamps and this was punched out with the circle and scalloped dies from Nestabilities.
The base card 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of lime green pearlescent card and one of three papers from Donnas Bearlymine "Christmas Joy" digi paper set and this first paper is an all over lime green colour with red and dark green poinsetta flowers, the second paper is a Father Christmas design and the third paper is a base of yellow with again the same poinsetta flowers, to finish of I used my sewing machine all around the edges, I did try to find a swirl stitch but the machine I used didnt have one so its a zigzag one instead.
The card has been made up according to the sketch and on top of this I have positioned three flourishes that have been punched out with the Marianne flourish dies, and positioned in three of the corners, I then put my image in the middle and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
To finish of I created a flower spray with two white and one red poinsetta and three punched out holly leaves from Martha Stewart, and arranged in a corner on the top left hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
