A Card for Sundays with Santa (Facebook Challenge)

Good Afternoon All, well Ive been rather lapse and blogging lately, but that doesnt mean that Ive not been working, Ive been trying to get well ahead with my DT work as I know that August is going to be a really busy month for me, not only are two of my grandsons due for a week but my eldest grandson will be getting married on the 18th so I really dont want to have extra pressures on my plate around that time.
Todays card is for this weeks "Folds" Challenge over on Facebook, this is a weekly challenge to help us collect a good amount of cards made ready for this years Christmas, if youd like to join dont hesitate to find out more. Anyway Ive used this gorgeous Sugar Nellie image and stamped onto white card then used my copic pens to colour, afterwards I used my large oval from Go Create dies and a scalloped one for the mount. I also used some glitter on her wings.
the base card is 6"x 6" white card with two folds instead of one and I have used blue card for the first mounts and a paper I found in my Sweetshoppe Digi Downloads and felt it was just right for my card, Ive also used the birch tree die from Memory Box and cut it out twice, then after I stuck it to the card I used some cosmic shimmer drys white glue on the branches to imitate snow. I then positioned my mounted image towards the middle and it just covered the side fold and Ive also done the same with the sentiment.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
