A Card for several Challenges

Good Afternoon All, I do apologise for my lack of posts, I dont seem to have the urgency to create cards just for fun at the moment most of my efforts seem to be just my DT cards, anyway I thought I would show you this card I created for this weeks Sundays with Santa Challenge over on Facebook, this weeks challenge is "Vintage" and I felt you might like to see the results. Ive used one of the Don and Daisy images from Marianne and coloured it with my copic pens, I then cut it out with Nestabilitie Label Die No.8 then drew around the die to create the mount.
The base mount is a 6"x 6" piece of red card with three papers from Maji's "Its Christmas Time" and the first one is a all over paisley pattern in shades of brown, beige and red, the second is a snowflake paper and Ive used my Martha Steward border and corner snowflake punches to create a square doily, on top is another of the same paper set but this one is a piece of newspaper type design and has been laid down the card.
I then positioned my mounted image in the center and the sentiment below on the right hand side, to finish of I have used a large Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart and punched out several sizes and dipped them into glass glitter, this was layered up and positioned it in the top right hand corner.
If you havent put your name to the blog candy above please do if your a regularly visit my blog.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hi Shirley, apologies for deleting my last comment but I went for clarification :-) The challenge is for Wrapping, so a gift bag, wrapping paper etc, or an image that is wrapping a gift.

Your card is gorgeous, the image is very cute and all the details are FAB :-)
I hope you can join in the challenge with another entry :-)

Absolutely gorgeous card Shirley.
The image is just so sweet and those papers are fabulous (I've stroked that pad once or twice myself...I might even be brave enough to cut into it yet!) They really do have a lovely vintage feel to them.

Big hugs lovely lady :)
