Flaunt It Fridays--Sleigh Card--"When Reindeer Dream"

This is my entry for the Flaunt It Fridays challenge this week, which was to flaunt the sleigh from Paper Doll Dressup.  I started with a piece of plain white cardstock, which I chalked on top, then added some glue and glitter "snow."  I cut the trees from glitter Coredinations cardstock I picked up yesterday at Joann for 25 cents!!  I added glue and brown glitter to the trunks, then some white paint to the limbs.  I cut the sleigh at 2 1/2" from plain white cardstock, then added a layer of DCWV textured CS, MS glitter paint around the edge, and MS ultrafine glitter on the runners.  I cut santa's bag from PDDU as well, from shimmery cardstock by Coredinations.  Santa was also cut at 2 1/2", starting with his body, using the blackout feature.  Clothes were also cut with blackout, then I altered him to be turned sideways--this took FOREVER, but he's cute!  The only part of him I don't like is his eyes...still haven't figured that out yet.  Reindeer is cut from Create a Critter, as is the light string ornamenting the sleigh.  I added glossy fabric paint to his antlers and nose, then added Black Stickles to his hooves.  Santa's fur trimmings are painted with white acrylid paint, which I lifted with a brush to add texture.  Rudolph's scarf, and the reins on the sleigh are strategically placed embroidery thread.  The inside of this cuter than cute card says, "When Reindeer Dream..."  It will be a hit with its intended audience!
