CD Sunday Challenge - Bear with me

What a busy week I had, well not really we had the painter in painting the lounge/dinning room so not a lot I could do,  it was wet so gardening was out of the question,  I had several jobs to do, did I get them done,  not really but I did manage to make a couple of cards.   Only when I looked at this card I had made for this challenge the invisible glue dot was visible under the vellum.  After a few choice words not in the English dictionary.  I tried to get the vellum off and try again,  well this is my second card so I hope this is OK.
I used Joanna Sheens CD The Pamela West Collection disc two,   I really do love this image and for this challenge I thought it would be nice to start making a few christmas cards.   The Santa sleigh is a die  cut sent to me from a friend (she knows who she is and thank you) it fitted this card perfectly.  The backing paper and the vellum Merry christmas are from stock and I punched out the silver snowflakes and finished off the card with silver peel off corners and a blue bow.
When I was making this card,  an image which I love, I imaged the Polar Bear sleeping with her club under the snow with Santa flying high above.  Well that's my in take and I'm sticking to it.
Hope you are keeping well until we meet again
Take care
