Cupcake Inspirations Colour Challenge #191 - Guest Designer

Good Afternoon, well a little while ago we were asked by Nina of Cupcake Inspirations and Veronica from The Paper Shelter if we would like to guest design a card for this "Colour" Challenge for them, and Im hoping that you might like to take part as well.

Here is the photo that was given to us to use as inspiration, and The Paper Shelter are sponsoring it and offering a prize of

And this is the card I created for the Challenge.

For my card I have used this "Santa's Cute Helper" and you will find it here, and at the moment The Paper Shelter have her on offer so its a good time to go and visit the website to see what else you can get at a special price. Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, then used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.17 to cut her out, then drew around the metal die onto red card to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one from my stash and I have stamped it also onto white card and created a mount from some of the red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, the papers I chose to use are also from The Paper Shelter and these are called "Christmas Spirit" and you will find them here, these are also on special offer so do please go and visit The Paper Shelter website and pick up these special prices while to can.  I have used several of the papers and layered them up onto mounts and they used some white webbing behind them afterwards I placed my mounted image towards the left with the sentiment across the bottom right hand corner.
To finish of I used some red card and a ornament border die to create the border at the top and a Memory Box ornament die in two colours for the embellishment on the right. The last little flourish are the two buttons at the bottom and on the sentiment.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blogspot and see for yourself what fabulous cards the Design Team have created and I hope that you also will want to take part in this "Colour" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
