Challenge #97 - The Paper Shelter "All Wrapped Up" Challenge

Good Morning Everyone, I carnt get over the fact that February is almost here and the last month has flown by, it still feels to me like its Christmas, oh well never mind and of course our next stop is Valentines Day and of course here at The Paper Shelter we shall be celebrating that to, so keep your eyes open for next few Challenges.
Because weve had such cold weather lately I picked the right Challenge for this week and thats "All Wrapped Up" one, so start delving in your images to see what youve have for this one, and of course as always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter, and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30:-

And of course this is providing you have used one of their products on your card, but even if you dont you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice. Dont forget to give The Paper Shelter website and see what stunning images and papers they have to offer you, and no doubt there will be a few of special offer as there often is. Dont forget you are only allowed to enter 3 cards and at least one of them must carry one of their products on it.
For my card I have used this cute little lad and hes staying indoors.

 Hes called "Hot Chocolate" and you will find him here, I have printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.1 to cut him out, and a decorative one for the mount. The sentiment is one of the Whimsey Stamps and this was cut out using a circle die and the mount is a larger one out of red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, and the papers I have used are from the "Christmas Spirit" paper set and you will find them here. I have used three papers the first is a mainly red background was stuck directly onto the first mount, then I have layered up in the other two and used a Martha Stewart Border punch on them.
I then used two of the Memory Box dies a window and shutters and these were stuck towards the left and the mounted image was placed towards the right and the sentiment below on the right. To finish of I have used some Candi Mini's at the top on the right and bottom left hand corners.
Now that youve seen my Card I hope that you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will take part in this weeks "All Wrapped Up" Challenge.
