A Card for Sunday's with Santa

Good Morning Everyone, well the sun is out and its already quite warm and I somehow expect our dog will want a walk later on so it should be a lovely day to do so. Anyway this is the card I made for this weeks Sundays with Santa on Facebook and Ive used this snowman from The Paper Shelter and you will find it here. Ive printed it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens and then cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto dark blue card, Ive used lots of glitter on the card as its a "Shiney Sparkles" Challenge and you know that snow glistens so I tried to put enough on to show you it doing that.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and I have used two papers from Donna's Bearlymine "Christmas" digi papers, the first is a sentiment and snowflake paper, then on top is a snowflake paper that I have cut into a 5" square and then with my Martha steward border and corner Snowflake punch around all edges then positioned it in the centre with the mounted image on top. The sentiment is one of the Just Rite stamps thats been coloured and then mounted on a circle die.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
