Challenge #229 - "A Christmas Card" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well I have a secret to tell you tomorrow is my 73rd Birthday can you believe it? Mind you I dont feel like Im that age my brain is telling me Im still in my 50s, the only problem with that is my daughter is 53 and Im sure she wouldnt like to think that I was that age again. Anyway I think I had better get on with my post, this weeks Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is "A Christmas Card" so I hope that you will have a card that you can add as most of us at the moment are actually making them ready to post in the next couple of weeks.
As always we are being sponsored by Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of

$30. to spend on their website but to do so you must use one of their products on your card and this could be either a Image, Backing Paper or Printable and you will find them here, but even if you dont they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really dont loose do you.
And now for my Card

This image is called "Christmas Carols" and you will find it here, and I printed it onto white card then used my copics to colour it, and then used my Nestabilitie Labels No.1 to cut it out, I used a larger one and green card for the mount which is slightly larger than the image. The sentiment is from my stash and has been stamped onto white card then mounted also on some green card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of green card, the paper is also from "Christmas Carols" and you will find it here, I then used some Memory Box fern dies along two of the edges and then placed my mounted image in the center and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "A Christmas Card" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
