Little Santa And Christmas Tree

Hello, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well? Not long before the festive season is upon us and still so much to do. I have been busy making Christmas card orders and I still haven't got around to putting up the tree.
Anyway. I am here to share a card that I have made for a special friend.

I used Waiting For Christmas Tree and Little Santa from the new Waiting For Christmas 2014 Collection.
I stamped and masked the images with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using  CartUs oval and matted it onto a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.
I have coloured the images with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design A Gift For You papers.
Other dies used are La - La - Land heart doily border Sizzix on the edge snow flurries, Marianne Design ivy circle  Christmas tree 1. Joy Crafts Billes flourishes and Cheery Lynn pine branches.I inked the edges of all the die cuts with Tim Holtz frayed burlock distress ink and painted lots of Snow - Tex onto the snow flurries.
The pretty lace, bark heart and jingle bells that I tied together with a piece of hemp twine are from Live & Love Crafts.

I have coated the tree with Twinklets diamond dust and used a string of white pearls to decorate it.
The Vintage digi Christmas sentiment is from Pink Gems Designs
For the arrangement I used a selection of roses, frosted berries, flower spray, lilac roses, an apple and decorative pins all from Live & Love Crafts.
 I coated the arrangement with Snow - Tex.

Here is a close up of Little Santa and Christmas tree.
I have added glamour dust to Santa's cuffs, hat trim, he star and bells on the tree. I  adhered a gold jingle bell to the end of Santa's hat.
I dotted Santa;s cheeks with a Inksentials opaque white pen and used white liquid pearls around the image.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.
I am still struggling to get the lamps angled correctly when taking a photo of my cards inside my soft photo cube.
It's driving me mad! Lol!!! Any tips?

I hope you like my card?

I am entering my card into the following super challenges;
