A Card for Sundays with Santa "A Card for a Child"

Good Morning Crafters, well I dont know if you heard it in your neck of the woods but at 1.30 am this morning there was a torrential downpour of rain yet again and it woke both hubby and myself up, its getting like a jungle in my garden as the grass and everything else is growing so fast, even the Forest is already over grown with ferns, I dont think theres enough sheep to chomp it down, the wild boar dont even touch that just turns over the grass instead, and of course its causing a lot of trouble when it gets into playing fields and gardens as you can image they do terrible damage. Now they want to cull them, not sure how they got dumped but theyve certainly reciprocated since they were dropped of on the side of the road a number of years ago.
Anyway Ive getting of the subject this weeks theme on Sundays with Santa is making a card for a child and I used this sweet Sugar Nellie image and printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her. Afterwards I used my Nestabilitie Labels Die No.1 to cut it out and a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card the papers are from Trimcrafts "Santa's Workshop" and I have used two papers the first is a white background with houses on and the second is a stripped one and I have placed that across the center and a mesh ribbon around the center was then attached to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then placed in the center and the diecut sentiment down the right hand side.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Beautiful, Shirley, I love that SN image and your beautiful BP's. Thankfully the rain has given it a rest, our garden after a grass cut is all marshy, horrible, hope the rain stops long enough for everything to dry out, hugs my friend xxx
