My First Card for Mo's Dream Team

Well today is the start of my month of being the Guest Designer for Mo's Dream Team and Im absolutely thrilled to be asked as you can image its definitely a dream come true, I do so hope that not only you but the rest of the team like what I have created for you all.
This gorgeous image is called "Santa Guy" and you will find it here my own feeling about this image is that dad has got caught out by his little daughter I do so hope that she doesnt loose her believe in Santa because of it, can you remember when you lost that innocent believe in Father Christmas, I must have been about five when I did and I was devastated by it to, it took quite awhile before I got over it.
Anyway the image has been stamped onto white card then coloured with my copic pens I then cut it out with the Mega Curved Rectangle by Spellbinders then drew around the die to create the mount for it, the sentiment is one of the Whimsey Seal stamps thats been cut out with the circle die and mounted on a Scalloped one.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with the first layer of red card and just one of the beautiful papers from Donnas Bearlymine Designs "Christmas Dreams" this is a beautiful paper with a gorgeous edge pattern and the swirls and hearts in the top right hand corner, across the middle I have wrapped a piece of white lace and attached it to the back of the bottom mount, then Ive positioned my mounted image towards the left hand side and my sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of I created a spray of flowers with a white hellabore and two cherry blossoms all from Wild Orchid, Ive used two sprays of holly berries and some punched out holly leaves and stuck them to the card with some silicone glue.
