Crafts & Me - Ribbons & Bows

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am finally back with a card after an unplanned absence,
My internet and landline went off last Friday morning and I finally got back online Monday night.
Tuesday my Mum locked herself out of work so a locksmith had to come to the rescue and then me and hubby had a new wardrobe for our laddo which we had to assemble.
So enough of my waffle and on to my card which you will also find over at the Crafts & Me Inspiration & Challenge blog.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
1.Art By Miran Challenge - 45 - Anything goes
2.Graph It Challenge - 46 - Christmas sparkles
3.Crafty Catz Challenge - 301 - Girls Only
4.Alphabet Challenge - T for Tis the season

7.The Ribbon Girls Challenge - November - Use any image
8.Southern Girls Challenge - Patterned paper mix up
9.A Bit More Time To Craft Challenge - 8 - Anything goes
10.Petal Lu Challenge - Anything goes

Now i wanted to challenge myself to use a non Christmas image and use it for a Christmas card.

My pretty girl is all ready to greet Santa :D
